Thanks Doug. I read the article and it was very informative. There were a number of presentations about the Sargassum problem in the Caribbean during the AMLC meeting in Punta Cana (beaches at the meeting venue had the problem as well). I don't recall any of the speakers mentioning this story of the origins of the algal bloom.  I think many of the presenters were looking at more local causes as well as elevated temperature. Great to have a larger world view of the source of the bloom.
