Marshall Islands Facts and Country Information...

The Marshall Islands are a group located in the Oceania region between north latitude 9 degrees and east longitude 168 degrees. The group consists of five independent islands and 29 atolls. They are lined up in two parallel lines, the Ratak and the Ralik. The total area taken up by the islands and atolls add up to 181.3 square kilometers, all of which is land. The total coastline adds up to 370.4 kilometers. The country claims a territorial sea till 12 nautical miles.

The climate on the islands is particularly hot and humid. There are cyclones and thypoons occasionally as the country sits at the edge of the Typhoon Belt of the North Pacific Ocean. The general height of the islands is very low as it is mostly low lying coral limestones and sandy beaches. The highest point on the group measures in at 10 meters above sea level and has no name.

The hot and humid climate with no rivers makes the land absolutely unfertile. Only 11% percent of the entire land is fertile and suitable for growing crops. The rainy season starts in the month of May and goes on till November. This is when a few creeks flood and run through the lands.
