I have noticed similar comments to a number of bleaching reports
lately, something like "I don't know how this is going to affect
things in the long run," or "who knows what permanent damage this
extensive bleaching will cause." I'm sure we all share the same dread
and concerns and it would be very productive if we could indeed find
out what really does happen.
Perhaps everyone submitting bleaching reports this year (including
yours truly) can post a "recovery report" some time late this year or
early in 1999 if possible. Accumulated bleaching reports and recovery
reports could be accumulated, paired up and saved for reference.
