About Namorik Atoll (Wikipedia):"Namdrik AtollorNamorik is acoral atollof two islands in the Pacific Ocean, and forms a legislative district of theRalik Chainof theMarshall Islands. Its total land area is only 2.8 square kilometres (1.1sqmi), but it encloses a lagoon with an area of 8.4 square kilometres (3.2sqmi).
Namdrik Atoll is located approximately 145 kilometres (90mi) west-southwest ofJaluit, and 117 kilometres (73mi) northwest ofEbon Atoll. The atoll consists of two large wooded islets. The larger (also called Namorik) wraps around the central lagoon from the southwest to the northeast, while the smaller island closes off the northwest corner of the lagoon. A coral islet stands between them on the reef, with numerous black boulders. The very shallow lagoon is cut off from the sea by the drying coral reef. Boats can cross the reef with difficulty, athigh wateron the west side of the atoll.
Landing near the west side of Namorik Islet can be effected about 90 meters south of it. There is no shelter during northeast winds, and it is dangerous with strong southwest winds when there is a heavy sea. There is a fringing reef which extends about 135 meters in the vicinity of the landing place. There is depth of about 1.2 meters and there are rocks in places. Two stranded wrecks lie about 90 meters off the south shore along the reef line. (Sailing Directions Pub-153)
Namdrik Atoll was claimed by theEmpire of Germanyalong with the rest of the Marshall Islands in 1884. After World War I, the island came under theSouth Pacific Mandateof theEmpire of Japan. Following the end of World War II, it came under the control of the United States as part of theTrust Territory of the Pacific Islandsuntil the independence of the Marshall Islands in 1986.
