I am looking for any information on the impacts of constructing jetties  
and marinas on coral reef communities. I'm interested in effects of the  
actual construction process, e.g. increased turbidity, sedimentation  
etc. from disturbing the sediment. I'm also interested in teh secondary  
and longterm effects. For instance, a new jetty or marina means more boat  
traffic and there is greater potential for anchor damage, and oil  
pollution (often runoff from discarded oil). 

If anyone has any information, or knows of publications or reports I'd  
appreciate hearing from you.
