Palmyra Atoll is an equatorial Northern Pacific atoll administered as an unorganized incorporated territory by the US federal government. The variable temporary population consists of 4-20 "non-occupants" who are staff and scientists employed by various departments of the US Government and The Nature Conservancy, as well as a rotating mix of Palmyra Atoll Research Consortium scholars pursuing research. Palmyra is located almost due south of the Hawaiian Islands, roughly halfway between Hawaii and American Samoa.
