A. D. Carrigan and M. L. Puotinen Assessing the potential for tropical cyclone induced sea surface cooling to reduce thermal stress on the world's coral reefs Geophysical Research Letters 38

Version of Record online: 3 DEC 2011 | DOI: 10.1029/2011GL049722

Key Points

  • The coincidence of TC activity and thermal stress varies for reefs globally
  • Frequent cyclone activity reduced thermal stress significantly in the Caribbean
  • Examination at local scales revealed a similar effect in other reef regions
