Of a ring.
This animation shows the dynamic process
of coral atoll formation. In favorable
conditions, the reef will expand, and the
interior island will subside. Eventually the
island completely subsides beneath the
water, leaving a ring of growing coral with
an open lagoon in its center. The process
of atoll formation may take as long as
30,000,000 years to occur.
