Abstract

Seismic stratigraphy of the bioherms suggests that they generally developed as individual mounds that accreted both vertically and laterally until they coalesced to form composite features. Their presence and rapid growth rates (to 5.9m/1000 yr as determined from C-14 dating of piston core subsamples) are possibly related to upwelling of deep, nutrient-rich, south-moving water from Makassar Strait. -from Authors
