Dear Coral-listers,

I am currently researching the occurrences of so called 'Green Water 
Events' in the Caribbean after witnessing such an event in Anguilla, 
July 2010. This event lasted for two-three days, during which time the 
water turned a lime-green colour around the western end of the island, 
leading to almost zero visibility. The cause and/or source of this event 
remains unclear and has yet to re-occur in the area. I do however 
remember a post on coral during 2009 (if my memory serves me correct) 
when a similar sounding event was reported in the Virgin Islands. I 
would be very interested if the person who posted this thread would 
email me more specific details and also let me know if they have 
witnessed a re-occurrence of the event. Similarly, has anyone else seen 
this phenomenon in the Caribbean? Is anyone aware of any documentation 
detailing occurrences and possible causes. I would be most grateful if 
anyone that has information relating to this, either now or in the 
future, would get in touch with me directly.

All the best,

PhD Candidate
