Tarawa Atoll in the Republic of Kiribati
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features a Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite view of the Tarawa Atoll in the Republic of Kiribati.
Tarawa is a triangular coral atoll located in the central Pacific Ocean about halfway between Hawaii and Australia.
Many of the islands of Kiribati are no higher than two meters above sea level, and the nation is severely threatened by climate change.
