Study of the coral bleaching phenomenon in Guadeloupe from 2019 to 2020 – Synthesis

In the Caribbean, corals living on reefs tolerate a maximum sea water temperature of about 29°C. Any long-term rise in temperature beyond this limit causes stress to these organisms, which results in a “bleaching” phenomenon, the severity of the consequences of which is linked to the extent of the rise in temperature as well as to the duration of the phenomenon. The frequency and extent of this phenomenon are directly linked to global warming.
