He may even now--if I may use the phrase--be wandering on some plesiosaurus-haunted Oolitic coral reef
, or beside the lonely saline lakes of the Triassic Age.
is raised, and some long mistake, some complicated edifice of self-delusion, over- confidence, and wrong reasoning is brought down in a fatal shock, and the heart-searing experience of your ship's keel scraping and scrunching over, say, a coral reef
He has no idea, poor wretch, of the spiritual destitution of a coral reef
in the Pacific or what it costs to look up the precious souls among the coco-nuts and bread-fruit.
There are zigzag lines on it, just like your temperature on a card, and these are probably roads in the island, for the Neverland is always more or less an island, with astonishing splashes of colour here and there, and coral reefs
and rakish-looking craft in the offing, and savages and lonely lairs, and gnomes who are mostly tailors, and caves through which a river runs, and princes with six elder brothers, and a hut fast going to decay, and one very small old lady with a hooked nose.
Moist climate, coral reefs
, sharks, Port Blair, convict-barracks, Rutland Island, cottonwoods--Ah, here we are.
The coloured map appended to my volume on Coral Reefs
, led me to conclude that the great oceans are still mainly areas of subsidence, the great archipelagoes still areas of oscillations of level, and the continents areas of elevation.
I am refreshed and expanded when the freight train rattles past me, and I smell the stores which go dispensing their odors all the way from Long Wharf to Lake Champlain, reminding me of foreign parts, of coral reefs
, and Indian oceans, and tropical climes, and the extent of the globe.
She was going among the coral reefs
and cocoa-nuts and all that sort of thing, and she was chartered for a fortunate individual of the name of Pa (himself on board, and much respected by all hands), and she was going, for his sole profit and advantage, to fetch a cargo of sweet-smelling woods, the most beautiful that ever were seen, and the most profitable that ever were heard of; and her cargo would be a great fortune, as indeed it ought to be: the lovely woman who had purchased her and fitted her expressly for this voyage, being married to an Indian Prince, who was a Something-or-Other, and who wore Cashmere shawls all over himself and diamonds and emeralds blazing in his turban, and was beautifully coffee- coloured and excessively devoted, though a little too jealous.
Between 6,000 and 14,000 tons of sunscreen lotion are emitted into coral reef
areas each year, much of which contains between one and 10% oxybenzone.
So global warming raises the average temperature of the ocean and then weather events like an El Nino make it particularly hot in one particular place -- and if that's where a coral reef
is, you get bleaching.
Although it's clear that recovery often takes decades, the range of restrictions we factored into our research helps us chart a course for the recovery of coral reef
fisheries that includes everyone, not just those who can afford to wall off large areas.
The new outlook gives us greater confidence in what it shows for future coral bleaching and it comes at an important time, said Mark Eakin, NOAA Coral Reef
