Coral Bleaching - have we dodged the Bullet?

Temperature anomaly map - you can clearly discern the track of cyclone Pam - source.

It sure looks like we have!

Have a look at the forecasts here and here.
This is quite possibly also the consequence of cyclone Pam having sucked away so much heat from the SoPac - but it sure appears that the area of biggest concern has shifted way North towards the equator where over the next months, it is expected to extend first to Kiribati and then, to the Galapagos and the Gulf of Panama.

Not good.
But I'm sure you can forgive us for breathing a sigh of relief!

But the Fat Lady hasn't sung quite yet - so fingers crossed!
