    Just 6 or 7% of the Great Barrier Reef is actually the shallow, colorful habitat your familiar with. Instead, much of it is deeper and darker, with much different structures than you’re used to. About 40 meters below the sea surface, scientists found a 500–meter-tall detached coral reef structure, about as tall as Empire State Building. Meet Tom Bridge, one of the lead researchers in the study.
