Former Voss Lab graduate student and paper author, Jennifer Polinski, documents bleaching during a warming event at FGB-NMS in 2016. This photo showcases some of the incredibly large coral colonies found at FGB-NMS. It also highlights the risk these reefs face, despite their geographic isolation. Fortunately, most colonies that experienced bleaching in 2016 recovered.
