Developed in collaboration with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Coral Reef Watch, the Caribbean Coral Reef Watch tracks the current sea surface temperatures and the related coral reef health, globally and regionally. It maps regional thermal stress levels and coral bleaching potential with a lead time of 20 weeks.
Also included in this early warning tool is a detailed outlook for countries most at risk of coral bleaching.
It is published between May and December to correspond with the season in which bleaching can occur.
