Coral framework construction and resultant growth fabrics in response to environmental factors were studied in the northern Red Sea, and the Gulfs of Suez and Aqaba. The dependence of growth fabric types on sea-floor topography, oceanography and the ecology of constituent coral species was investigated. Five types of coral frameworks and their growth fabrics were differentiated: Acropora reef framework (platestone to mixstone facies); Porites reef framework (domestone facies); Porites carpet… CONTINUE READING
