	The Remote Sensing Facility of the Department of Marine Science, 
University of South Florida, in St. Petersburg, Florida, and 
NOAA/AOML/OCD's Coral Health and Monitoring Program, are collaborating to 
provide Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) images to the 
coral research community. This capability provides researchers with 
another tool for gaining a better understanding of the influence of water 
masses on the health of coral assemblages.  The images are available as a 
URL link off the CHAMP Home Page at: 


	The AVHRR data has been processed to represent sea surface 
temperature (SST) fields. Only images which have 20% or better SST 
coverage over water will be displayed, so the most recent image may not be 
today's.  Past images are archived and available. 

	At the present time, only AVHRR images of Florida Bay and the 
Florida Straits are available, but if you have other reef areas you'd like 
to see, or if you have other special requests, please drop a line. 

	Sincerely yours, 

	Jim Hendee
