Abstract

This overview of the Great Barrier Reef area shows that different parts of the same reef may have responded differently to sea-level change. The new terms "keep-up reefs, catch-up reefs, give-up reefs" are proposed. The conditions of reef initiation over an older substrate are discussed. (P.A. Pirazzoli).
