With the inclusion of recently documented Lophelia “reef mounds” in deep arctic waters, together with studies of deep-water pelagic limestones, the globalization of carbonates was nearly complete - almost. One part of the global distribution pattern remains understudied...

The 87 Sr/ 86 Sr values of 28 coral specimens from the mound show an upward-increasing trend, correspond to ages from 2.6 to 0.5 Ma, and identify a significant hiatus from ca. 1.7 to 1.0 Ma at 23.6 m below seafloor...

... Lophelia pertusa in Norwegian waters contributes ∼54–188 g/m 2 / yr locally, or 0.03–0.38 g/m 2 /yr averaged over the entire shelf. These estimates indicate that cold-water reef CaCO 3 flux is 4%– 12% of the tropical reefs. A first tentative global estimate indicates that cold-water coral CaCO 3 production...
