Kwajalein (8°43'N., 167°44'E.)

World Port Index No. 56370 4.69 Kwajalein, the principal island of the atoll, lies at the

SE end of the atoll and is 26m high to the tree tops. Numerous oil and water tanks, an airfield, and other installations are situated on the island.

Kwajalein Island observes M time zone and E hemisphere date. This puts the island 22 hours ahead of Hawaii.

Tides—Currents.—The mean range of tide is 1m, while the maximum range is 2m.

4.69 4.69

A W current with a rate of 1.5 knots sets along the S side of

Ebadon Island, the W extremity of the atoll. The currents throughout the lagoon set SW at a rate of 2 to 3 knots. They do not reverse on changing tide. The currents are strongest at half ebb. The currents off the W side of the atoll are reported to be variable.

4.69

During periods of strong NE winds (October through June)

and at half ebb, a 3-knot current has been observed setting through South Pass, about 5 miles NW of Kwajalein Island. At the same time, a current setting NW at a rate of 2 to 3 knots sets along the lagoon side of Ennyiabegan Island, about 1.3 miles NW of South Pass, toward Gea Pass.

4.69

The ebb current in Gea Pass (8°49'N., 167°35'E.), a little

less than 1 mile NW of Ennyiabegan Island, attains a maxi- mum rate of 2.25 knots at spring tides and sets in a WSW direction.

4.69

There is usually a SW-NW set in Milu Pass(Mellu Pass),

about 4.5 miles SW of the N extremity of the atoll, at a maxi- mum rate of 2 knots. The flood attains a rate of 1.5 knots and the ebb a rate of 2 knots.

4.69

The directions of the tidal currents in North Pass, about 2.3

miles NE of Milu Pass, are variable. The estimated rate of the current is about 3 knots.

4.69

Depths—Limitations.—General depths of 29.3 to 54.9m

are found throughout the lagoon, except near the atoll reef. As a rule, greater depths are found in the S part of the lagoon. There are a number of small reefs and coral heads scattered throughout the lagoon; some of these are marked by buoys. These dangers are visible under favorable conditions of light. Many passages within the lagoon have been wire-dragged, as indicated on the charts.

The main cargo complex is an L-shaped structure. The long

side runs E and West. The N face is designated Foxtrot Pier. This pier is 274m long with the furthest 150m from shore used for berthing. The depths in this area range from 7.6 to 11.5m. The side facing the lagoon runs at a bearing of 020° and is

4.69

designated Echo Pier. This pier is 97.5m long and has dolphins to accommodate vessels up to 192m. Depths along Echo Pier range from 10.4 to 11.5m.

4.69

Alpha Pier, Bravo Pier, Charlie Pier, and Delta Pier have

depths of 4.5 to 6.1m, and are generally not used for visiting vessels.

A T-headed petroleum berth is situated S of Echo Pier and has an alongside depth of 9.1m.
