Description:
Abstract:
The NOAA Coral Reef Watch (CRW) experimental global Seasonal Coral Bleaching Thermal Stress Outlook product at 1x1 degree spatial resolution described here is based on sea surface temperature (SST) forecasts generated by an operational, dynamical, fully coupled ocean-land-atmosphere seasonal climate forecast model, the NOAA/National Weather Service/National Centers for Environmental Prediction's (NCEP) Climate Forecast System (CFS) Version 2. The CFS-based Outlook significantly enhances CRW's capability for predicting the likelihood of coral bleaching up to four months (typical length of a bleaching season) into the future. With four CFS forecast runs per day, with lead-time up to 9 months into the future, CRW is able to produce a probabilistic Seasonal Outlook with 28 ensemble members at the weekly time scale. Currently on the Outlook product's webpage, CRW displays the CFS-based Seasonal Outlook at probabilities of 90% and 60%, thereby identifying the lowest thermal stress levels that 90% and 60% of the 28 ensemble members predict, respectively. Also displayed are four images of the percentages of the 28 ensemble members reaching each of the four coral bleaching thermal stress levels (Bleaching Watch & Higher, Bleaching Warning & Higher, Alert Level 1 & Higher, and Alert Level 2). The corresponding weekly outlooks that the Seasonal Coral Bleaching Thermal Stress Outlook is derived from are also provided to show development of potential thermal stress conditions on the weekly basis. This Seasonal Outlook is updated weekly, currently every Tuesday (U.S. Eastern Time). The first version of CRW's CFS-based Seasonal Coral Bleaching Thermal Stress Outlook prodcut, based on SST forecasts from CFS Version 1, was released to the public in July 2012. In December 2012, the second version of the CFS-based Outlook was released, by upgrading the system to use SST forecasts from the operational CFS Version 2 (CFSv2), which replaced CFSv1. In a normal year, the Outlook forecasts no potential for bleaching. When the forecasted SST exceeds bleaching thresholds over a long enough period to cause bleaching, however, the Outlook maps display the bleaching potential. Actual conditions may vary due to model uncertainty, subsequent changes in climatic conditions, extreme localized variability, or weather patterns. This effort is made possible through collaboration between NCEP and CRW, supported by funding from NCEP and the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program.
Purpose:
The NOAA Coral Reef Watch (CRW) mission is to utilize remote sensing, modeled, and in situ tools for near-real-time and long term monitoring, modeling and reporting of physical environmental conditions of coral reef ecosystems. A suite of monitoring and prediction products, including this product, has been developed by CRW as a decision support system (DSS) 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 CRW's CFS-based Seasonal Coral Bleaching Thermal Stress Outlook depends on the accuracy of the sea surface layer temperature prediction produced by NOAA/NCEP's operational Climate Forecast System (CFS), currently Version 2, and the accuracy of CRW's algorithm for predicting Coral Bleaching HotSpots and Degree Heating Weeks (DHW). More detailed descriptions of NCEP's CFS and CRW's CFS-based Outlook product are provided in the following two articles, respectively: 1) Suranjana Saha, Shrinivas Moorthi, Xingren Wu, Jiande Wang, Sudhir Nadiga, Patrick Tripp, David Behringer, Yu-Tai Hou, Hui-ya Chuang, Mark Iredell, Michael Ek, Jesse Meng, Rongqian Yang, Malaquías Peña Mendez, Huug van den Dool, Qin Zhang, Wanqiu Wang, Mingyue Chen, and Emily Becker (2013).

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 Seasonal Coral Bleaching Thermal Stress Outlook data, but occasional revisions to some images may occur if an inaccuracy is detected in the data image display. New Outlook images will be produced continuously at scheduled weekly update times. As an experimental product, this Outlook will be evaluated continuously and improved versions may replace older versions over time with corresponding announcements.

CRW's current CFS-based global Seasonal Coral Bleaching Thermal Stress Outlook product is derived from the sea surface layer temperature prediction of NCEP's Climate Forecast System Version 2.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The level of predicted coral bleaching thermal stress at a model grid presented in the Outlook product is determined by the values of predicted Degree Heating Weeks and Coral Bleaching HotSpots at that grid. For a predicted date, the daily Degree Heating Weeks prediction is calculated as the accumulation of predicted and observed (if needed) Coral Bleaching HotSpots over 12 consecutive weeks up to the predicted date. At each grid, for a specific lead time, a coral bleaching sea surface layer temperature threshold value derived from the CFS Version 2 hindcast is subtracted from the sea suface layer temperature prediction to produce the Coral Bleaching HotSpots prediction. If observed HotSpot values are needed, they are produced using the same algorithm, but based on the Version 2 Optimum Interpolation Sea Surface Temperature (OISST), including the threshold based on OISST Version 2 of early years. See the CRW web site at: <http://coralreefwatch.noaa.gov/satellite/index.php> and Eakin et al. (2012) above for additional details.
