- ... The main island of New Caledonia (NC) is surrounded by the second largest barrier reef in the world after the Australian Great Barrier Reef. The Upper Pleistocene evolution of this barrier reef–lagoon complex offers the opportunity to examine the response of a modern mixed tropical siliciclastic/carbonate system to relative sea-level changes and to better constrain the relative role of lagoon back ...

- ... Microbialites are volumetrically abundant components in Last Glacial Maximum and deglacial reefs in the Australian Great Barrier Reef sampled by IODP Expedition 325 in 34 holes from 17 sites (M0030–M0058), along four transects on the shelf edge. Detailed radiometric datings show that four distinct reef phases developed between 28and 10 ka, displaying offlapping and then backstepping patterns. The ...
