Calcium Carbonate Production Lines

Shallow, seaward portions of modern coral reefs produce about 4 kilograms of calcium carbonate per square meter per year, and protected areas produce about 0kilogram per square meter per yearhe difference is probably largely a function of water motionhe more rapid rate, equivalent to a maximum vertical accretion of 3 to 5 millimeters per year, places an upper limit on the potential of.
