dc.description.abstract Analysis of SST data of this region, derived from the Giovanni on-line data system , developed and maintained by NASA GESDISC, revealed 1.02°C and 1.61°C rise in temperature above normal during 2014, in summer and winter respectively, could trigger coral bleaching (Figure 2). The present study indicates that the reef is under stress; however, a detailed study is required to understand coral bleaching more precisely.
