Many people seem to be
attracted the the island of Vanuatu. Here I will tell you the geography of this island.
Vanuatu (formerly called New Hebrides) is a nation and group of islands in the South Pacific Ocean. It is made up of over 80 islands with 2,528 km of coastline and a total surface area of 14,760 km², making it slightly larger than the state of Connecticut. Vanuatu is also apart of the Oceania. Vanuatu’s immediate neighbors would be such as the Solomon Islands and New Caledonia, and Australasia would be the closest continent. The climate there in Vanuatu is tropical. moderated by southeast trade winds from May to October. Moderate rainfall from November to April. Vanuatu may also be affected by cyclones from December to April.
Some of the natural recourses
for Vanuatu are such things like: manganese, hardwood forests, and even fish. As of 1993, 75% of its land area is covered by forests and woodland, 10% is devoted to crops, and a further 2% each to permanent pastures and other arable land. Also the natural hazards would be tropical cyclones or typhoons (January to April). Volcanic eruptions cause minor earthquakes or at times tsunamis.
Some current enviornemntal issues in Vanuatu is that majority of the population do not jave accedd to a reliable supply of potale water. Deforestation has also been a current issue for Vanutu as well.
Something you’d probably
want to know is that there is a Y-shaped chain of four main islands and 80 smaller islands and several of the islands have active volcanoes.
