Coral Reef Sedimentation on Rodrigues and the Western Indian Ocean and its Impact on the Carbon Cycle
Coral reefs in the southwest Indian Ocean cover an area of ca. 18 530 km2 compared with a global reef area of nearly 300 000 km 2. These regions are important as fishing grounds, tourist attractions and as a significant component of the global carbon cycle. The mass of calcium carbonate stored within Holocenc neritic sediments is a number that we are only now beginning to quantify with any confidence, in stark contrast to the mass and sedimentation rates associated with pelagic calcium...[Show more]
