This record shows an Air Photo Interpretation of the geology and morphology of Abarao, Ambo, Taborio, Tangintebu, Eita, Bangantebure and Bikenibeu, in Kiribati. The map was produced as part of the CCOP/SOPAC Coastal Mapping Workshop that was held in Kiribati in 1988. 1968/69 and 1984 photo sets of Air photograph interpretation of South Tarawa, and the Southern part of North Tarawa was used. However, plotting of recent (July 1988) re-surveys of beach profiles on Betio and Bairiki and comparison with earlier surveys were made. The map was prepared by Mark Urvois who was doing Data Management at CCOP/SOPAC. There are four other adjoining sheets that accompany this copy. This is Sheet 3.
