Coral reefs head for 'knock-out punch'

Coral reefs head for 'knock-out punch'

Science
Media playback is unsupported on your deviceRepeat bouts of warmer seawater are posing a significant challenge to the world's tropical corals. A study of 100 reefs, published in Science Magazine, shows the interval between bleaching events in recent decades has shortened dramatically. It has gone from once every 25-30 years in the early 1980s to an average of just once every six years today. Bleaching is caused by anomalously warm water, which prompts coral polyps to eject their symbiotic algae. This drains the corals of their colour and is fatal unless conditions are reversed in a reasonably short time. But even if temperatures fall back quickly, it can still take many years for damaged reefs to fully recover. "If you go into the ring with a heavyweight boxer, you could probably stand up ...

Harvey runoff is threatening coral reefs in the Gulf of Mexico

Science
Oct. 16 (UPI) -- New research suggests a massive plume of freshwater from Hurricane Harvey runoff is threatening coral reefs in the Gulf of Mexico.Last month, monitoring buoys measured a 10 percent drop in salinity at the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary, located 100 miles off the coast of Galveston, Texas."The salinity at one buoy on the reef dropped from 36 to 32 on Sept. 28, but it rebounded to 36 by Oct. 4, and it has been between 35 and 36 since then," Rice marine biologist Adrienne Correa said in a news release. "We don't yet know what impact the low salinity had on the reef while it was there."Correa is one of several scientists preparing to take an expedition cruise to the sanctuary's coral reefs and survey the possible damage caused by dramatic swings in salinity.Rese...
