    The sand and coral islands that compose the atoll comprise less than six square kilometers of land and never rise more than five meters above the vast Pacific Ocean around it. Today, the Marshallese call it the Enewetak Atoll. But when U.S. troops landed on its tiny islands packed with Japanese troops, it was known by them as Eniwetok Atoll. Micropaleontologic analyses of Neogene sediments from Enewetak Atoll, Marshall Islands, provide data on the age of lagoonal deposits, stratigraphic disconformities and the paleoenvironmental and subsidence history of the atoll. Benthic foraminifers, planktic foraminifers, calcareous nannofossils and ostracodes were studied from six boreholes, the deepest penetrating feet below the lagoon.
