Letter to the Editor: NOAA Declares Third Ever Global Coral Bleaching Event Article Courtesy: noaanews.noaa.gov | Originally published: October 8, 2015 | Thank you: Mark Eakin Ph.D. – NOAA
Thank you to Mark Eakin from NOAA for this interesting bit of news! Atlantic Caribbean bleaching reports in now from Florida Keys, SE Florida, north and south coasts of Cuba, Cayman Islands, Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, and starting to bleach in Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Bonaire.
As record ocean temperatures cause widespread coral bleaching across Hawaii, NOAA scientists confirm the same stressful conditions are expanding to the Caribbean and may last into the new year, prompting the declaration of the third global coral bleaching event ever on record.
Waters are warming in the Caribbean, threatening coral in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, NOAA scientists said. Coral bleaching began in the Florida Keys and South Florida in August, but now scientists expect bleaching conditions there to diminish.
“The coral bleaching and disease, brought on by climate change and coupled with events like the current El Niño, are the largest and most pervasive threats to coral reefs around the world,” said Mark Eakin, NOAA’s Coral Reef Watch coordinator. “As a result, we are losing huge areas of coral across the U.S., as well as internationally. What really has us concerned is this event has been going on for more than a year and our preliminary model projections indicate it’s likely to last well into 2016.”
While corals can recover from mild bleaching, severe or long-term bleaching is often lethal. After corals die, reefs quickly degrade and the structures corals build erode. This provides less shoreline protection from storms and fewer habitats for fish and other marine life, including ecologically and economically important species.
