Reef islands of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The physical and major vegetation characteristics of individual reef islands are described and mapped. Mapping was undertaken from 1:10 000 colour vertical aerial photographs taken in 1987, supplemented by ground truthing. Elevational information was derived from a series of profiles surveyed across reef islands and related to mean sea level datum. Additional data come from existing surveys and benchmark records. Details of perimeter and island area are given and are examined sequentially. -from Authors
