[Extract] Estimations of coral reef accretion rates can be undertaken using a number of techniques. Most tedious is the use of growth rates from individual organisms (Chave et al., 1972). More recent methods include the measurement of total reef metabolism and calcification (Kinsey, 1985) or estimates of rates during the Holocene from dated drill cores (Davies, 1983; Davies and Hopley, 1983).
