Wistari Reef, within the southern Great Barrier Reef, is a shallow coral reef platform featuring a very clearly defined leeward accretionary wedge of carbonate sediments. The total global area of shallowly submerged coral reef has been quantified as 255 000 km2. The question then becomes: 'What additional area of sediment of significant thickness is associated with the measured shallow reef areas?' At Wistari Reef, the leeward sedimentary wedge has an area and a thickness that are roughly equal...[Show more]
