Tsunami damage to coral reefs

I found this article on MSNBC.com, and thought it was interesting. I also saw a thread discussing peppermint shrimps, so I thought I'd share.

I don't know that we will know the true damage to the ecosystem for quite some time. Think about all of the fuel and oil that was washed into the reef.

When I heard about the damage done onland one of the things I thought about was the damage done under water. Then I heard a story about some people whom where diving on the reef and when they came up after the dive the entire event was over. Basicly it had all happend while they where on their dive. I belive shallow reefs like the one in the MSNBC article will be affected the most while deeper reefs will be affected very little except for maybe the after effect of water polution.

Im sure we will hear about this for a long time.

The pollution, and all of the non-biodegradables that will sink along the deeper reefs.
