Attribute data from reef facies, shown graphically.
A. Reef width vs. total length. Fully aggraded reefs generally become wider as their long axis increases, but the relation is more subtle for the more discontinuous, partially aggraded reefs (left).Fully aggraded reef, Caicos platform (center). Partially aggraded reef, Caicos platform (right).
B. Apron width vs. reef width, Caicos platform, which shows strong positive relation between width of the reef (reef is fully or partially aggraded) and the apron..
C. Exceedance probability plots from all platforms, with Caicos being the largest, show size attributes for reef width (left) and apron width (right).
