Two reef systems off south Molokai, Hale 0 Lono and Hikauhi (separated by only 10 kIn), show strong and fundamental differences in modern ecosystem structure and Holocene accretion history that reflect the influence of wave-induced near-bed shear stresses on reef development in Hawaii. Both sites are exposed to similar impacts from south, Kona, and trade-wind swell. However, the Hale 0 Lono site is exposed to north swell and the Hikuahi site is not. As a result, the reef at Hale 0 Lono records… CONTINUE READING
