Random information on the term “Coral island”:
A raised coral atoll or uplifted coral atoll is an atoll that has been lifted high enough above sea level by tectonic forces to protect it from scouring by storms and enable soils and diverse – often endemic – species of flora and fauna to develop. With the exception of Aldabra Island in the Indian Ocean and Henderson Island in the Pacific, most tropical raised atolls have been dramatically altered by human activities such as species introduction, phosphate mining and even bomb testing.
Random information on the term “ATOLL”:
The Maldives are formed by a number of natural atolls plus atolls in the form of a few islands and isolated reefs today which form a pattern stretching from 7 degrees 10′ North to 0 degrees 45′ South.
The Maldives is a long and narrow country formed by 26 natural atolls. Some atolls are in the form of a number of islands by time and in the form of isolated reefs, which could be classified as smaller atoll formations. All land above the surface in the Maldives is of coralline origin. The atolls of the Maldives form a quite regular chain and, especially in the northern and central atolls, an arrayed structure is apparent. There are broad and deep channels in between some atolls. The origin of the word atoll itself is in the language of the Maldives. “Atoll” (from Dhivehi “atholhu”) is now used in many languages worldwide.
Traditionally, Maldivians call the atolls ending in ‘-madulu’ or ‘-mathi’ by their name without adding the word “Atoll” at the end. For example, it is correct to write simply Kolhumadulhu, without adding the word ‘Atholhu’ at the end. This is also the case in the atoll known as Faadhippolhu.
