• 50Fotos -- Chuuk, Micronesia

    50Fotos of Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia. These photos are from my brief trip to Chuuk in July 2006, but I lived there with my wife from 1974-76 as a Peace Corps Volunteer and also conducted master's thesis research there in 1979. In those days, the islands were known as Truk, and were part of the U.S, Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. These photos are of the main lagoon island of Weno (Moen), and of my former home island of Tonowas (Dublon). Some of the people pictured I've known for more than 35 years. The Chuukese song "Romonum I" was recorded in the islands by the late David Fanshawe. See the other 50Fotos slideshows.

    http://www.thecenterforlifeexpression.com Chuuk Lagoon, formerly known as Truk Lagoon, is a sheltered body of water in the central Pacific. North of Papua New Guinea, it is located mid-ocean at 7 degrees North latitude, and is part of Chuuk State within the Federated States of Micronesia. During World War II, Truk Lagoon was the Empire of Japan's main base in the South Pacific theater. Operation Hailstone, executed by the United States in 1944,[6] culminated in one of the most important naval airstrikes of the war at Truk. Twelve Japanese warships, thirty-two merchant ships and 249 aircraft were destroyed, although the larger warships had moved to Palau a week earlier. In 1969, French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau and his team explored Truk Lagoon. Following Cousteau's 1971 television d...

    Video and photos from our November 2010 trip to Palau and Yap: Wed 24 Nov 2010 What a day of diving contrasts! When we dove Sakura Terrace 12 years ago, it was the most astounding stand of hard coral we'd ever seen. Now, after typhoon Sudal(2004) that is all most all gone. A lot of the small scale features are still there, but some really huge coral heads got toppled. Sad. But the following dives, all along the channel from Sakura back to base were phenomenal muck dives! Just one wonder after another, and not all small stuff. Loved it and planned to return before the Yap stay is over.

North of Papua New Guinea, it is located mid-ocean at 7 degrees North latitude, and is part of Chuuk State within the Federated States of Micronesia.

Twelve Japanese warships, thirty-two merchant ships and 249 aircraft were destroyed, although the larger warships had moved to Palau a week earlier. In 1969, French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau and his team explored Truk Lagoon. Following Cousteau's 1971 television documentary about the lagoon and its ghostly remains, the place became a scuba diving paradise, drawing wreck diving enthusiasts from around the world to see its numerous, virtually intact sunken ships. The shipwrecks and remains are sometimes referred to as the "Ghost Fleet of Truk Lagoon". Scattered mainly around the Dublon, Eten, Fefan and Uman islands within the Truk group, a number of the shipwrecks lie in crystal clear waters less than fifteen meters below the surface. In waters devoid of normal ocean currents, divers can easily swim across decks littered with gas masks and depth charges and below deck can be found numerous human remains. In the massive ships' holds are row upon row of fighter aircraft, tanks, bulldozers, railroad cars, motorcycles, torpedoes, mines, bombs, boxes of munitions, radios, plus thousands of other weapons, spare parts, and other artifacts. Of special interest is the wreck of the submarine I-169 Shinohara which was lost when diving to avoid the bombing. The sub had been part of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) are Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk (formerly Truk) and Yap, stretching over a vast expanse of Pacific Ocean just north of the equator. Together, the states comprise around 607 islands (a combined land area of approximately 702 km2 that cover a longitudinal distance of almost 2,700 km just north of the equator. 2. During World War II, Chuuk Lagoon was the Empire of Japan's main base in the South Pacific theatre. In 1944 it was destroyed by US bombers, in an attack that lasted 3 days, sinking 12 warships and 32 merchant ships. The consequences of the attack made Chuuk lagoon the biggest graveyard of ships in the world. 3. No visit in Yap is complete until you have a chance to see the Stone Money Banks located throughout the island. Massive pieces of Stone Money line a stone pathway in the villages displaying the wealth of the village. Here, size does matter as each piece has a value based on where it came from and how it was made. 4. Every year since 1952, the United States Air force has carried out ‘Operation Christmas Drop’ to give gifts to the people of the remote Kapingamarangi Atoll. The gifts are donated by the people of Guam. As well as useful supplies like fishing nets and tools, the parcels also contain toys and school supplies for the children of Kapingamarangi. The boxes are dropped from a large cargo plane, on parachutes, and can weigh anything up to 180 kg each. 5. Nan Madol is an ancient ruined city built on man-made islets. It is a ceremonial compound, built on a network of man-made structures just offshore, on the eastern side of Pohnpei. It was a scene of human activity as early as the first or second century AD. By the 8th or 9th century, islet construction had started. 6. The Rumung people, living in the far north, are fearfully conservative. The island of Rumung has been forbidden to all foreigners since the 17th century. The absolute preservation of culture and tradition was paramount to the community of Rumung. 7. For such a small and isolated country, it had a lot of contacts with the western world. Since the 19th century, it was ruled by Spain, Germany, Japan and the US. Their former capital city, Kolonia, was built by the Spanish, but after independence the Micronesians built their own, new capital: Palikir.
