Transcript

  • 1. Guam (Chamorro: Guåhån) ist die größte und südlichste Insel des Marianen-Archipels im westpazifischen Ozean. Sie ist ein nichtinkorporiertes Territorium der USA (Außengebiete der Vereinigten Staaten). Die Hauptstadt ist Hagåtña, auch bekannt als Agana, bevölkerungsreichste Siedlung allerdings ist Dededo. Bekannt geworden ist die Insel durch den dort befindlichen strategisch wichtigen USamerikanischen Luftwaffenstützpunkt Andersen Air Force Base sowie das spektakuläre Aussterben fast der gesamten einheimischen Vogelwelt durch die wohl während des Zweiten Weltkrieges durch Truppen- und Materialtransporte der USAmerikaner eingeschleppte Braune Nachtbaumnatter (Boiga irregularis). Guam gehört geographisch zu der Inselregion Mikronesien und besteht aus einem flachen, korallinen Kalkplateau auf vulkanischem Untergrund (auch gleichzeitig die Quelle des meisten Süßwassers) mit steil aufragenden Küstenklippen und einer schmalen Küstenebene im Norden, einer flach gewellten Hügellandschaft in der Inselmitte und Bergen im Süden. Die Insel liegt in einer erdbebengefährdeten Zone. In vergangenen Jahren erreichten Erdbeben, deren Epizentren nahe Guam lagen, Stärken von 7,0 bis 8,2 auf der Richter-Skala. Guam is an organized, unincorporated territory of the United States in the western Pacific Ocean. It is one of five U.S. territories with an established civilian government. Guam is listed as one of seventeen NonSelf-Governing Territories by the Special Committee on Decolonization of the United Nations The island's capital is Hagåtña (formerly named Agana). Guam is the largest and southernmost of the Mariana Islands.
