Gene and listers,
Thank you for the note and the link. A team of scientists actually surveyed those areas in Northern Sumatra last February and photographed the uplifted reefs as well as collected information from both outside and underwater reefs.
Results have been submitted to "Coral Reefs".
Thank you

uplifted (100 percent

earthquake?  To see a 
portion of the uplifted reefs, recently surveyed 
by USGS geologists, 
see the satellite images at,
