Not illustrated. 1903 Excerpt: ...of the northern part of Tiladummati show this process of growth admirably, and there we can readily trace the development of a large single island from two smaller islands placed at each extremity of the atolI. We need only look at the charts and follow the gradual junction of the two islands of Hanimadu now connected by a low narrow sand spit, or those of Filadu or of Baura and Kelai or Noliwang Faro, and pass to such an island as Kuludu Faro, which occupies fully one half of the faro flat, to Komangdu and finally to Nuriwari, each occupying a gradually greater part of the reef flat rim till the island occupies the whole, and appears as a circular or elliptical island steep to, surrounded by an insignificant fringing reef flat!

The southwest monsoon must strike the south face of Miladummadulu with considerable force; the tops of many of the cocoanut-trees are blown off, leaving nothing but the trunks.
