Abstract

Shallow reef-top sites were exposed to surface waters modified by prevailing weather conditions; the deeper outer slopes lay permanently within a well buffered, relatively oceanic water mass. Thermal stability and relative water movement were poor predictors of coral growth and survival. The most stable and the most unstable thermal environments were both poor habitats for corals.-from Authors
