dear coral listers. in the last month we have noticed some bleaching in 
pocilloporid corals from loreto to cabo san lucas (25 to 22N in the gulf of 
california). water temperature is normal (from 22 to 25o in surface), but the 
water is unusually transparent. does anybody has seen something like that 
elsewhere? we think that the problem is caused by UV light but we have no data 
to test the idea. is there any uv light database in the web? gracias!
