Towards this end, the postdoctoral researcher will be advised on the following research: developing and testing an updated version of the NOAA Coral Reef Watch method for predicting the occurrence of mass coral bleaching to explicitly consider the historical climate that the reef has experienced; downscaling coarse resolution projections from GFDL’s state of the art global earth system models onto the reef scale using the temperature and chemistry data products developed by Coral Reef Watch; projecting the frequency of mass coral bleaching events for coral reefs worldwide at moderate resolution under different future climate change and acidification scenarios; and estimating the trajectory of coral cover. We seek a create and motivated individual with expertise on coral reef ecology as well as the manipulation of large data sets from field observations, satellites and/or Earth
