  1. Estimations on water flow were taken from McGehee [113]; standard deviations for the data were not available. Sedimentation rates are reported as mean values ± standard deviation (Coral Reef Ecosystem Studies Project, unpublished data). * Represents not available data for that reef, however the sedimentation patterns are similar to those in Pelotas.
