Abstract
This chapter reviews research on the effects of drilling mud on coral reef communities, concentrating on the major reef fauna: the reef-building or hermatypic corals. Drilling mud is an effluent introduced to the marine environment in large quantities during the typical offshore drilling operation. Concern over its possible detrimental effects, when drilling activities are near coral reefs, has been the impetus for the work to be discussed.
