Majuro

(mäjo͞o`rō), atoll and town (c.4 sq mi/10 sq km; 1988 pop. 19,664), capital of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Located in the Ratak Chain in the W central Pacific, Majuro has port facilities and an international airport. Commercial fishing is economically important. Sport fishing is popular, and divers are attracted by the underwater wreckage left from World War II. The College of the Marshall Islands is at the east end of the atoll.
