Intertidal vermetid reefs could be affected by many human disturbances. Using a microtopography device, the authors analysed the changes induced by the accessibility on the surface topography of the reefs. Human activities seems to be able to induce a decrease in rugosity and a surface smoothing on the outer margin of the reef. These effects are proportional to the accessibility of the site.
