just a few questions form a student interested in coral bleaching.
Are there any records of sea surface temperature along the coast?
From your locations it looks like the bleaching progressed from south
(Mahahual Reef) to north (Puerto Morelos). I guess that warming has
happened in the same direction.
And another question. Has it happened before, that almost all
scleractinian species have bleached or was it confined to a few
species in earlier events?
