One of the most common types of coral reefs is the fringing reef. The most distinct feature of the fringing reef is that they usually have no lagoons and if a lagoon is present it is generally very shallow. Several fringing reefs extend directly from the shoreline, and in this case, there is no lagoon.
The three main types of coral reefs are fringing, barrier, and atoll. Schools of colorful pennantfish, pyramid, and milletseed butterflyfish live on an atoll reef in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. The most common type of reef is the fringing reef. This type of reef grows seaward directly from the shore.
Types of Coral Reefs: The various types of coral reefs are grouped into three major types: 1. Fringing Reefs: The fringing reefs also referred to as the shore reefs are built from the sea bottom and extend from the shore up to 1 4 miles having no navigable channel between the shore and reef. This zone of the sea is called edge or front.

Coral Reef Types. Fringing Coral Reef these are coral reefs that form along side the shore or coast line. These reefs often have high flow rates and often intense sun light due to the shallower water depths. Patch Coral Reef this is a small coral reef often isolated from other reefs.
The following points highlight the three main types of coral reefs. The types are: 1. Fringing Reef 2. Barrier Reef 3. Atoll. Type # 1. Fringing Reef: Coral reefs developed along the continental margins or along the islands are called fringing reefs (fig. 30.1). The seaward slope is steep and vertical while the landward slope is gentle.
Types of Coral: The classification of coral is unsatisfactory. Corals are divided into several types depending upon the habit or association and upon the structure. I. Solitary corals: The typical examples of the solitary corals are the Fungia, (Fig. 12.39A), Flabellum, Caryophyllia, Balanophyllia, etc.
The Structure and Distribution of Coral Reefs, Being the first part of the geology of the voyage of the Beagle, under the command of Capt. Fitzroy, R.N. during the years 1832 to 1836, was published in 1842 as Charles Darwin's first monograph, and set out his theory of the formation of coral reefs and atolls.
With growth rates of 0.3 to 2 centimeters per year for massive corals, and up to 10 centimeters per year for branching corals, it can take up to 10,000 years for a coral reef to form from a group of larvae (Barnes, 1987). Depending on their size, barrier reefs and atolls can take from 100,000 to 30,000,000 years to fully form.
