Coral Bleaching Levels
Coral bleaching is an extremely complex process, so to make reporting more straightforward we simplified it down to three categories:
Light bleaching represents areas where some corals look pale but are not bleach-white.
Medium bleaching categorizes areas where small portions of corals are bleach-white.
Severe bleaching is used to describe large areas with bleach-white corals.
