Abstract: TIlis study, covering a period of eight months, was undertaken
to determine if measurable changes in characteristics occur in sea water passing over a shallow coral reef. The parameters studied
include salinity, temperature, current velocities, dissolved oxygen,
pH, dissolved organic carbon and particulate organic and suspended
inorganic carbon. Staining and microscopic observations were made
to supplement the other data.
The results showed noticeable increases in oxygen, pH, particulate
organic and inorganic carbon abundance in the central portion
of the reef, which were attributed to the influence of extensive
growths of benthic algae found on the seaward edge. Dissolved
organic carbon concentration increased gradually across the reef,
and there is evidence that inorganic carbonate is being accumulated
on the leeward side of the reef.
