Reef development on a remote coral atoll before and after coral bleaching: A geospatial assessment

Hamylton, S; Mallela, Jennie

Description

Coral reefs are consolidated calcium carbonate (CaCO3) platforms built over hundreds of thousands of years by calcifying organisms including corals, encrusting algae and invertebrates. The geomorphic integrity of coral reefs depends on the carbonate budget, which quantifies the net gain or loss of calcium carbonate, given additive and removal processes. Here, we construct three carbonate budgets for Cocos (Keeling) atoll in the East Indian Ocean from seafloor records of carbonate producers...[Show more]
