High sea temperatures together with abnormally high salinities may
result in a lower than usual threshold for coral bleaching at Sombrero Key
and elsewhere in the Florida Keys. Please see daily output of the
FIO/NOAA SEAKEYS Network at http://www.coral.noaa.gov/cman/cman_menu.html.
The higher than normal salinities are a result of the extended drought
conditions we have had in South Florida over the last six months or so.
I would like to ask that researchers in the area keep your eyes open for
early signs of bleaching and let us know.
