Thank you Marguerite!  I'd add that last I knew, Atoll Research Bulletin
was open-access and there was no charge for authors.  It is a real,
peer-reviewed journal. That makes it an attractive option.   Cheers, Doug

"mitigating climate change is the critical wedge to set coral reefs on a
recovery trajectory"  Duarte et al 2020 Rebuilding marine life Nature

"Already, more people die  <http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/hazstats.shtml>from
heat-related causes in the U.S. than from all other extreme weather events."


Even 50-year old climate models correctly predicted global warmng

"Global warming is manifestly the foremost current threat to coral reefs,
and must be addressed by the global community if reefs as we know them will
have any chance to persist."  Williams et al, 2019, Frontiers in Marine
