I Google Earthed the Majuro  airport (2012 image) and see an 
excavation to the west of the runway on the lagoon side as well as 
what appears to be an older excavation on the reef flat to the south 
facing the open ocean. Elsewhere there are panoramic views. It might 
help if there were spherical panoramas of the digging area in 
question. It might help your cause if we could actually see the 
excavation site at ground level and determine if it is reef flat (as 
in coral limestone) or live reef being excavated. Gene
