Notice: NESDIS plans to discontinue all Coral Reef Watch operational 50km resolution satellite coral bleaching heat stress monitoring products.
They are being replaced with higher resolution 5km satellite products. 50km products to be retired and replaced with 5km products are: sea surface temperature (SST), SST Anomaly, Coral Bleaching HotSpot, coral bleaching Degree Heating Week, Bleaching Alert Area, and the Virtual Stations. Archived data and images will still be available.

A 30-day comment period is now open for users to send objections or concerns about this product retirement. Send comments to John.Sapper@noaa.gov.
