Physical processes determine spatial structure in water temperature and residence time on a wide reef flat

Kristen Davis, Emma Reid, Steven Lentz, Thomas DeCarlo & Anne Cohen
On coral reefs, flow determines residence time of water, influencing physical and chemical environments and creating observable microclimates within the reef structure. Understanding the physical mechanisms driving variability on coral reefs, which distinguishes them from the open ocean, can be important for understanding what contributes to thermal resilience of coral communities and predicting their response to future anomalies. In June 2014, a field experiment was conducted at Dongsha Atoll in the northern South China Sea...
