Summary Notes

No Stress

No heat stress HS <= 0

Watch

Low heat stress 0 < HS < 1

Warning

Heat stress accumulating HS >= 1
0 < DHW < 4

Alert Level 1

Significant bleaching expected HS >= 1
4 <= DHW < 8

Alert Level 2

Widespread bleaching expected; mortality likely HS >= 1
DHW >= 8
  • Bleaching alerts are only generated when there is a stress level change for a station.
  • Note: The alerts are generated for affected reef regions, archipelagos, and/or jurisdictions, not for individual data grid points.
  • Note: The previous 50km satellite bleaching alert system has been replaced by a 5km version as of 1 September 2016
  • Your bleaching observations (including observations of no bleaching) are grealy appreciated. Observations can be sent to coralreefwatch@noaa.gov and/or entered online via Coral Reef Watch.
  • Should you have any questions or feedback about our Satellite Bleaching Alert email system, please contact us at coralreefwatch@noaa.gov.
  • To view, change (stations, email type, etc), or end your subscription, please visit the Coral Reef Watch Satellite Bleaching Alert System website.
