Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Can pumping up cold water from deep within the ocean halt coral bleaching?

(Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences) Rising ocean temperatures cause marine heat waves, which place stress on living coral animals, as well as the photosynthetic algae on which they depend for energy. A new study led by Yvonne Sawall, assistant scientist at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS), is showing potential for the use of artificial upwelling (AU)--or the application of cooler, deep water--as a way to mitigate the thermal stress on corals.
