Abstract

This paper examines the likely response of coral reefs to future sea-level change over the time scale of 102 years, in the light of what is known of reef growth rates and reef response to sea-level change in the historical record, especially since the late glaciation, and of the contemporary growth rates of reefs. Given the present imprecision of attempts to estimate future sea-level rise, the A. suggests broad response rates of reefs to various potential sea-level scenarios
