Caption: Sand cay, Great Barrier Reef. Aerial photograph of a stage in the formation of an islet on the Great Barrier Reef in the Coral Sea, near Cairns, Australia. The sandy raised section above the tide is a sand cay, the first stage in the formation of a permanent land feature. If the cay (also called a key) is not destroyed by storms then it may continue to develop into an islet.
