Dear Coral Listers,
In June of 2016 a small group of U.S. scientists, including graduate students, postdocs, and senior investigators, met in Hawaii before the ICRS for a two-day workshop on coral bleaching. A primary goal of this meeting was to discuss the state of the science of coral bleaching and how bleaching research may move forward into the next decade. This effort was kindly sponsored by the U.S. National Science Foundation, and a brief summary of the meeting was provided in the December 2016 Reef Encounter (Volume 31, no. 2) available on the international Society for Reef Studies (ISRS) website. While this was a small U.S. effort with a focus of reporting these ideas to NSF, we believe many of the topics are germane for continued international collaborative efforts and discussion around the world. A white paper that was generated from the outcomes of this meeting is now available as a PDF here:
