Summary: 
(A) Drowned shelf-edge reef at Grafton Passage. Recent investigations by marine geologists at the James Cook University College of Science and Engineering using multibeam echo sounders have revealed drowned reefs that extend for hundreds of kilometres along the GBR outer shelf edge in –40 m to –70 m depth. This submerged ‘barrier reef’ near Grafton Passage is ~200 m wide (Source: Beaman R, Webster JM, Wust RAJ (2008) New evidence for drowned shelf edge reefs in the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. Marine Geology 247, 17–34). (B, C) Paleochannel near Cruiser Passage, North Queensland. During the last glacial maximum, sea level was over 100 m lower than today. During these times, rivers deposited floodplain and channel sediments on the continental shelf and upper slope (Images: R. Beaman).
