Although the islands were spread out over 142 miles of ocean from 29°10' to 31°30' south and from 171°45' to 179° west, d'Entrecastreux considered them as one group, which he named the "Kermadec Islands" after his second in command.
The island is surrounded by kelp, a seaweed that tends to foul propellers and to wash ashore and rot.
It is a round island with a maximum elevation of 9000 feet and an average annual temperature of 32.7°F. There are no natural harbors, and the wind seems to come from the wrong direction on all sides or, as a sailor would say, it has no lee side.

 Urbanization and Empire Formation in World-Systems
Great population size makes possible the assembly of large armies or navies, and this may be an important factor creating or reinforcing steep city size distributions.
And we will examine the temporal relations between the sizes of the largest cities and empires in each region as well as size distributions of cities and empires and the relations between the largest and the second largest cities and empires when data are available.
Another problem with existing data on both city and empire sizes is that they were produced from surveys of both secondary and primary sources that are now, in many cases, obsolete because more recent and better research has been published by archaeologists, epigraphers and historians.

 Terrestrial Ecoregions -- Galápagos Islands xeric scrub (NT1307)
To geologists these islands are considered quite young, dating back 3-6 million years for the oldest islands in the eastern part of the archipelago and less than 1 million years for the younger islands in the west.
Mammals are not very numerous due to their inability to survive such a long journey at sea from the mainland to the islands, except for the 6 mammals considered native to this ecoregion.
The Galapagos Islands were lumped under the broad classification of xeric scrub to better represent the broad scale classifications of ecoregions, and we recognise the unique and diverse species associations that stray from this classification in the montane regions (CDF/WWF In prep.).

Because the eye of the storm never actually passed directly over the island, the winds lasted for hours and hours and hours with no interruption, simply changing direction as the storm passed by to the south heading WNW towards the western tip of Cuba.
Terms used by those on-island to describe the damage were 'total devastion', 'catastrophic', 'war zone', and many related stories of standing in their homes, in family groups, in waist- or chest- deep floodwaters for hours as a result of the massive storm surge.

We created the Banda Sea Islands Moist Deciduous Forests [AA0102] by combining the islands in the Kai and Tanimbar archipelagos, which were distinguished as a biogeographic unit by Monk et al.

When choosing a Galapagos Islands cruise there is a vast array of ships to choose from—large cruise ships with a capacity of up to 100 passengers, to medium sized ships from 32 to 48 passengers, and small yachts for 8 — 26 passengers.
In general the medium and large ships tend to be more stable and spacious, with a greater range of social and evening activities.
However, because of the large number of passengers, there can be congestion when landing, and some sites may be impossible to visit because of the number of passenger and the ship's size.
