A few days ago, we reported that researchers observed no bleaching events at the Gulf of Mannar this year.  Now, NOAA is forecasting no major coral bleaching event in 2011 anywhere in the world.  The thermal-stress computer models for 2011 show significantly lower ocean temperatures, giving the world’s reefs a much needed respite.  Corals will also have the opportunity to heal from past bleaching events.
