Coral Reefs are among the most ancient of Earth’s natural wonders. They are the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the planet, facing threats of natural stresses, such as hurricanes, cyclones, typhoons, earthquakes, or plagues of coral-eating predators like the crown of thorns starfish, about which we can do little. However, humans are just as destructive.
Developments are being made of monitoring techniques, as well as studies of the reefs’ geologic growth and development about how they are affected by sedimentary and hydrologic processes. These efforts will help provide information that is essential if coral reefs are to be saved.
