I have a long-term monitoring project established on Roatan and 
Barbareta on the Bay Islands.  Our sites cover numerous locations on 
the north and south side of the island.  We are looking at sediment 
accumulation, water quality, coral health, and a variety of other 
factors.  We have documented accelerating coral mortality.  Mostly, 
this is not related to bleaching events, but to direct human impact.
