For instance —18 and —35 m terraces are present on many islands, banks, and atolls (Vaughan, 1919; Goreau, 1961; Goreau and Burke, 1966; Milliman, 1967b; Stanley and Swift, 1967). Submerged hermatypic reefs have been found on the shelf off Florida (Duane and Meisburger, 1969; Macintyre and Milliman, 1970), Yucatan (Logan et al, 1969), and many Caribbean islands (Macintyre, 1967b, 1972). In addition, submerged oolitic dunes have been found off central Florida (Macintyre and Milliman, 1970) and Yucatan (Logan et al, 1969).
