    • Keep up or drown: adjustment of western Pacific coral reefs to sea-level rise in the 21st century 

      van Woesik, Robert; Golbuu, Yimnang; Roff, George (2015-07-22)
      Since the Mid-Holocene, some 5000 years ago, coral reefs in the Pacific Ocean have been vertically constrained by sea level. Contemporary sea-level rise is releasing these constraints, providing accommodation space for ...
