Projected Delay in the Year of Annual Severe Bleaching

Three plots showing dots on a global map under three different climate scenarios.

Detailed Description

Map showing coral reef locations and the projected Delay in the Year of Annual Severe Bleaching (DYASB) caused by internal waves at tidal frequencies that flush reefs with cooler waters, buffering the thermal stress from rising sea-surface temperatures, for different Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) emission scenarios.
