We are presently watching the Caribbean begin its 2005 summer warm-up in 
the most southern reaches of this Sea....

So far, for this time in late May, the thermal stress appears to be 
building up at an unprecedented rate.  This is since we have been 
watching HotSpots and DHWs evolve (since 1997)....stay tuned....

Reports appreciated....our Automated Satellite Bleaching Alerts (SBAs) 
scheduled to begin this summer!!
