Rapid poleward range expansion of tropical reef corals in response to rising sea surface temperatures
[1] Rising temperatures caused by climatic warming may cause poleward range shifts and/or expansions in species distribution. Tropical reef corals (hereafter corals) are some of the world's mostExpand

Multi-site evaluation of IKONOS data for classification of tropical coral reef environments
Ten IKONOS images of different coral reef sites distributed around the world were processed to assess the potential of 4-m resolution multispectral data for coral reef habitat mapping. Complexity ofExpand

Importance of foraminifera for the formation and maintenance of a coral sand cay: Green Island, Australia
Abstract CaCO3 production by reef-building organisms on Green Island Reef in the Great Barrier Reef of Australia is estimated and compared with the contribution of benthic foraminifera to theExpand

Geographic variability in organic carbon stock and accumulation rate in sediments of East and Southeast Asian seagrass meadows
Organic carbon (OC) stored in the sediments of seagrass meadows has been considered a globally significant OC reservoir. However, the sparsity and regional bias of studies on long-term OCExpand

Implications of reef ecosystem change for the stability and maintenance of coral reef islands
Coral reef islands are among the most vulnerable environments on Earth to climate change because they are low lying and largely constructed from unconsolidated sediments that can be readily reworkedExpand

Anatomy of a Modern Coral Reef Flat: A Recorder of Storms and Uplift in the Late Holocene
ABSTRACT Cores from Kabira Reef, Ishigaki Island, southwest Japan, reveal the internal structure and temporal changes in sedimentary process of a complete coral reef flat. The reef crest caught upExpand

Analysis of the seawater CO2 system in the barrier reef-lagoon system of Palau using total alkalinity-dissolved inorganic carbon diagrams
We studied the seawater carbon dioxide (CO2) system in the Palau coral reef by measuring total alkalinity (TA) and total dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC). Variation in the CO2 system on the reef flatExpand

Holocene sea-level changes and barrier reef formation on an oceanic island, Palau Islands, western Pacific
Abstract Internal facies and development of an oceanic island's barrier reef were revealed by the stratigraphical study of six drill cores in Palau Islands, western Pacific. The Holocene reefExpand
