  1. The articles about carribean coral reefs being affected by erosion. The coral reefs are losing carbonate due to erosion. Without the carbonates the coral reefs cannot continue to grow. The definition of erosion is the process of eroding or being eroded by wind, water, or other natural agents.

  2. Erosion is the wearing away of something by a natural process. In the caribbean, the coral reefs carbonate is being eroded away. The coral is not growing well since the essential nutrients it needs to survive os being taken away by the water and wind.

  3. Coral reefs are depleting due to the water erosion. The things the coral need to survive are being taken away by wind and water erosion. Erosion is the movement of sediment by natural causes

  4. Erosion is the wearing away of something due to natural causes like water, wind, and other natural factors. The article is talking about the issue of erosion in the Caribbean islands. This is a serious problem because the coral is not being able to grow due to the erosion of the nutrients that they need to grow.

  5. This article is about how Coral reefs build their structures by both producing and accumulating calcium carbonate, and this is essential for the maintenance and continued vertical growth capacity of reefs

  6. Coral reefs n the Caribbean islands can’t grow due to erosion taking away nutrients in the soil. Erosion is the process of wearing away things through natural process of water, wind, and other natural factors.

  7. Coral reefs in the Caribean are starting to lose the ability to produce calcium carbonate. This is because they are growing up instead of horizontally, and if they don’t have this calcium carbonate they can collapse. Erosion is the Process of soil and rock being removed from earths surface, or in this case the reef being stripped of calcium carbonate.

  8. Erosion is the wearing away of land by wind and water. The coral reefs are loosing their ability to produce calcium carbonate and are not getting a strong footing where they live and are collapsing. This makes erosion much easier.

  9. Erosion is slowly destroying coral reef habitats because they are losing their ability to produce calcium carbonate and they aren’t able to “plant” their roots where they want. Erosion is the wearing away of the land by water and wind

  10. The definition of erosion is the process of being eroded by wind, water, or other natural agents found in nature. The article is about the carribean coral reefs being affected by erosion. The coral reefs are losing carbonate due to erosion. Without the carbonates the coral reefs cannot continue to grow. This is a major problem that is affecting the carribean coral reefs.

  11. This article is about how eroision is destroying the coral reefs. Erosion is causing new carbonate from being produced in the reefs. This is greatly effecting them. Erosion is the process of wearing away of the earths surface by natural agents.

  12. Erosion is destroying the coral reefs. Erosion is the process of wearing away of the earths surface by natural agents.

  13. Erosion is not only destroying the coral reefs its making sure that it can’t grow back. And erosion is the natural elements wearing away at the earths surface

  14. Erosion is destroying the coral reefs. Erosion is the process of wearing away of the earths surface by natural agents.

  15. The article is about how erosion is affecting the coral reefs. The carbonate that allows coral reefs to grow is being depleted and is making it impossible for the reefs to keep growing. The definition of erosion is the process of wearing away at the earths surface by wind, water, or other natural agents.
