CREWS News – Coral Bleaching Reports
The CREWS buoy issues an alert to NOAA when air and sea conditions approach levels which can cause mass coral bleaching. NOAA then issues an early warning to coral scientists around the world. CCMI scientists monitor the reefs before, during, and after bleaching events.
CREWS Dashboard - Environmental Data from Little Cayman
CCMI has developed a tool for students and citizen scientists to use the environmental data collected by the CREWS buoy.
