Abstract:
The NOAA Coral Reef Watch (CRW) satellite coral bleaching Degree Heating Weeks (DHW) product is part of the CRW operational near-real-time global 50-km satellite coral bleaching thermal stress monitoring product suite. This product suite was initially implemented in 2000 and continues to provide updated monitoring information twice-weekly. This metadata file provides information on the DHW product for both the most recent near-real-time updates and the archived DHW product dating back to 2000. The DHW product measures accumulation of bleaching thermal stress that coral reefs experience over a period of 12 consecutive weeks (about 3 months), ending on the day indicated in the product. It is derived from the Coral Bleaching HotSpots product (another key tool in the CRW operational product suite). A Coral Bleaching HotSpot is a specific type of sea surface temperature (SST) anomaly that measures the amount of SST exceeding a static coral bleaching threshold SST; it serves as a measure of instantaneous bleaching thermal stress and shows the occurrence, magnitude, and spatial distribution of the stress. All non-positive HotSpot values are recorded as zeros. The DHW value (again, a measurement of accumulated thermal stress) is, in its most simplistic form, the sum of all of the individual twice-weekly HotSpot values at any particular location, within a 12-week period and with a magnitude of at least 1 degree Celsius, multiplied by the duration of the twice-weekly HotSpot value (i.e., 0.5 weeks). A more complicated formula describing how the DHW value is calculated can be obtained at: <http://coralreefwatch.noaa.gov/satellite/methodology/methodology.php#dhw>. One DHW is equivalent to one week of SST at 1 degree Celsius above the threshold, or 0.5 weeks of SST at two degrees Celsius above the threshold. Near-real-time satellite data from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) on some of NOAA's Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES) were used to generate AVHRR-SST that this CRW product suite is based on. Related details, as well as other important information, are provided in each DHW HDF data file. This product is available in various formats, including static image, animation, HDF data, and Google Earth and is delivered through multiple mechanisms, including websites, ftp, and OPeNDAP, along with time series data in text format at selected locations, known as CRW Satellite Virtual Stations. The DHW product, its detailed description, and its available data formats and delivery mechanisms are accessible at: <http://coralreefwatch.noaa.gov/satellite>, along with general CRW product information and access to other CRW products.
Purpose:
The NOAA Coral Reef Watch program seeks to fully utilize space-based sea surface temperature (SST) observations combined with in-situ data to continually monitor for early indications of thermally-induced coral reef bleaching worldwide. A suite of monitoring and predicting products, including this satellite Degree Heating Weeks product, has been developed by CRW as a decision support system to provide critical and timely coral reef environment information to the U.S. and international coral reef communities.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The accuracy of the Degree Heating Weeks (DHW) product depends on the accuracy of Coral Bleaching HotSpots, satellite SSTs, and bleaching threshold SSTs. A full evaluation and validation of CRWs HotSpots and DHW have not been completed yet. A preliminary evaluation revealed, however, that these products demonstrate remarkable success in detecting, monitoring, and predicting all large spatial scale mass coral bleaching events. Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellite (POES) AVHRR-SST values used for creating CRW 50-km SST analysis fields were accurate to within 0.5 degree Celsius and adjusted by in-situ buoy observations to best-approximate SST at the depth of one meter. However, when producing a complete, gap-filled SST analysis with global coverage, estimation of SST at the pixels covered by cloud may occasionally reduce the accuracy of SST at these pixels.
Logical_Consistency_Report: none
Completeness_Report:
There is no spatial data gap existing in this data set. No change will be made to the original Degree Heating Weeks data, but occasional revisions to some images may occur if an inaccuracy is detected in the image display of the data. New near-real-time Degree Heating Weeks products will be continuously added into this data collection at scheduled routine data update times.

Process_Description:
A Degree Heating Week is calculated as the accumulation of Coral Bleaching HotSpots over 12 consecutive weeks. At each pixel, a coral bleaching threshold SST value is subtracted from the SST value to produce the Coral Bleaching HotSpot. See CRW web site at: <http://coralreefwatch.noaa.gov/satellite/index.php> and suggested references listed above for details.
