      I have been following the developing bleaching events unfolding in 
the Florida Keys. When I was in the keys for the month of July water was 
warm but I observed no bleaching. Nedimyer’s transplanted /Acropora 
cervicornis/ at Carysfort was doing just fine at that time. Now we are 
hearing about bleaching in the media, and from NOAA.Does anyone have 
underwater thermograph data that provides water temperature data for the 
keys reef areas for July through August and September? Gene
