SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE AFFECT THE GROWTH OF CORAL REEFS

A new study has shown that coral outplant survival is likely to drop below 50% if sea surface temperatures exceed 30.5 degrees Celsius and that survival rates can also be predicted by considering temperature conditions in the year prior to outplanting
