Researchers from the USA and Australia studied the seabed off the coast of Cape York, an island in northern Queensland
The reef rises above the rest of the bottom like a wedge: its width is 1.5 kilometers, while at the top it narrows to 40 meters. The structure is taller than the Eiffel Tower.
The researchers note that most of the reefs in the area were already mapped back in the late 1800s. The reef is now the seventh tallest formation on the Great Barrier Reef.
The annual mission in the Arctic has ended and the data are disappointing. What awaits humanity?
