Holocene Carbonates of Florida
The images illustrate the geology of Florida Keys: including the Acropora Reefs with their spur and groove fabrics that rim the Straights of Florida; the Patch Reefs on the Florida Platform between the linear rim of seaward margin reefs and the Florida Keys; and nearshore Rodriguez Key Porites Reefs just east and offshore from the Key Largo. Florida Bay mangrove swamps, with their Keys and banks are seem to the western lee.
Photographs, maps and cross sections taken or compiled by a variety of scientists including Christopher Kendall. Where authors are known these are indicated on or beside the image. The spectacular photographic images from outer space are from NASA.
