Stretching all the way from Papua New Guinea down to (by one definition) the Swains this massive, ever changing Reef is at best hard to 'know'/5(4). The Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Australia, is the world's largest coral reef system. Stretching more than 1, miles, it provides a home to a wide diversity of creatures. Designated a World Heritage Site, the reef is suffering from the effects of climate change but this fascinating book shows this spectacular part of our planet.

Stretching over kilometers along the northeast coast of Australia, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral system that has ever existed. The Great Barrier Reef is a chain of coral reefs about 2 km long, skirting the continental shelf off the coast of Queensland, Australia, stretching from just south of the Tropic of Capricorn, towards the coastal waters of Papua New Guinea.

Sedimentary material from the floor of the Queensland continental shelf, as well as beach-rock and reef-rock from inner and marginal shelf reefs of the Great Barrier Reef, have been dated by 14 C methods. The results confirm previous evidence of relict facies on the shelf but do not lend support to the view that lithified surfaces of inner reefs are older than those of other reefs in the by: 7.

The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system composed of over 2, individual reefs and islands stretching for over 2, kilometres (1, mi) over an area of approximatelysquare kilometres (, sq mi).

She is part of a group at the university taking a small step to help boost the Great Southern Reef's profile by writing a children's book to try to explain its significance to a younger generation.

Facies analysis of cores recovered from the Great Barrier Reef margin, Queensland Trough, and Queensland Plateau by these authors revealed that the upper-slope sedimentation resulted from the relationships between sea level fluctuations, antecedent topography, and regional climate that played important role in the type and amount of sediment.

A good news story from the Southern Great Barrier Reef is the recovery of coral on One Tree Island in the Capricorn-Bunkers.

After severe impact from cyclone Hamish inresearchers from Southern Cross University found remarkable recovery of both reef calcification and.

Unlike the Great Barrier Reef, the various ecosystems that would make up the Great Southern Reef are currently managed at state level. “Many of the strongest pressures on the Great Southern Reef are broad-scale in nature, and know no state boundaries,” Thomas adds.

The real Great Barrier Reef is a living thing - a kilometre-long, untamed organism, made up of trillions of animals. It is the magnificent and terrifying home to the wild things of nightmares and hallucinations.

The Great Barrier Reef | Location The Great Barrier Reef is located along the North East coast of Australia between its northern extent of Bramble Cay (9 °0 8’S ° 52’E) in Torres Strait to Lady Elliot Island (24°06’S °42’E) in the South. It is entirely contained in the Coral Sea and affected by the current flowing from the Pacific Ocean.

Creation of The Great Barrier Reef. The great barrier reef was created aboutyears ago, however it has not always looked the same and has changed and moved many times since.

3.Years Ago.The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system with over 2, individual reefs, coral cays, and inshore mangrove islands; 8. Hard corals, the backbone of the GBR, grows at an average of inches ( centimeters) per year.The reef formed from the great southern landmass of Gondwanaland and the Australian plate splitting apart.

Around million years ago, the reef building corals became established and over the periods, the continual shelf of eastern Australia become consolidated, forming the substrate intensive coral formations, this precedes the present Great Barrier Reef.
