Welcome to CoralStress.org!
This website was constructed to share the coral heat stress data set from "Global patterns and impacts of El Niño events on coral reefs: a meta-analysis". Our goal is to provide an easy-to-access database of coral stress information. Currently, we provide NetCDF files including global Degree Heating Week (DHW) values at quarter-degree increments from 1982-2016.
