Atoll Development

We have done several presentations with schools while back in Canada.  Some of the questions have been on atolls.  So ... Victoria and I put together a slideshow on atoll lifecycles using Google Earth based on places we visited last year.  We are visiting a niece's grade six class tomorrow and Victoria will include the following slides:
Fatu Hiva: No fringing reef yet

Mo'orea: fringing reef started.  Limited lagoon
Bora Bora:  Full fringing reef and the mountain has began to subside.

Suwarrow:  A fringing reef and a full lagoon
