    • BUMPER v1.0: A Bayesian user-friendly model for palaeo-environmental reconstruction 

      Holden, Philip B.; Birks, H. John B.; Brooks, Stephen J.; Bush, Mark B.; Hwang, Grace M.; Matthews-Bird, Frazer; Valencia, Bryan G.; Van Woesik, Robert (2017-02-01)
      We describe the Bayesian user-friendly model for palaeo-environmental reconstruction (BUMPER), a Bayesian transfer function for inferring past climate and other environmental variables from microfossil assemblages. BUMPER ...
    • Climate-change refugia in the sheltered bays of Palau: Analogs of future reefs 

      Van Woesik, Robert; Houk, Peter C.; Isechal, Adelle Lukes; Idechong, Jacques Wasai; Victor, Steven; Golbuu, Yimnang (2012-08-31)
      Coral bleaching and mortality are predicted to increase as climate changeinduced thermal-stress events become more frequent. Although many studies document coral bleaching and mortality patterns, few studies have examined ...
    • Coral disease hotspots in the Caribbean 

      Van Woesik, Robert; Randall, Carly J. (2017-05-01)
      Recent outbreaks of coral diseases in the Caribbean have been linked to increasingly stressful sea-surface temperatures (SSTs). Yet, ocean warming is spatially heterogeneous and therefore has the potential to lead to ...
    • Keeping up with sea-level rise: Carbonate production rates in Palau and Yap, western Pacific Ocean 

      Van Woesik, Robert; William Cacciapaglia, Christopher (2018-05-08)
      Coral reefs protect islands from tropical storm waves and provide goods and services for millions of islanders worldwide. Yet it is unknown how coral reefs in general, and carbonate production in particular, will respond ...
    • Quantifying uncertainty and resilience on coral reefs using a Bayesian approach 

      Van Woesik, Robert (2013-12)
      Coral reefs are rapidly deteriorating globally. The contemporary management option favors managing for resilience to provide reefs with the capacity to tolerate human-induced disturbances. Yet resilience is most commonly ...
    • Some coral diseases track climate oscillations in the Caribbean 

      Randall, Carly J.; Van Woesik, Robert (2017-12-01)
      Disease outbreaks continue to reduce coral populations worldwide. Understanding coral diseases and their relationships with environmental drivers is necessary to forecast disease outbreaks, and to predict future changes ...
    • Unprecedented Disease-Related Coral Mortality in Southeastern Florida 

      Precht, William F.; Gintert, Brooke Erin; Robbart, Martha L.; Fura, Ryan; Van Woesik, Robert (2016-08-10)
      Anomalously high water temperatures, associated with climate change, are increasing the global prevalence of coral bleaching, coral diseases, and coral-mortality events. Coral bleaching and disease outbreaks are often ...
