Global warming, regional trends and inshore environmental conditions influence coral bleaching in Hawaii

Jokiel, Paul L., and Eric K. Brown. "Global Warming, Regional Trends And Inshore Environmental Conditions Influence Coral Bleaching In Hawaii." Global Change Biology 10.10 (2004): 1627-1641. Academic Search Complete. Web. 23 June 2014.

Kassy Bertz's insight:

Hawaiian waters show a trend of increasing temperature over the past several decades that are consistent with observations in other coral reef areas of the world. This article focus's on the environmental change of coral bleaching. Provides data, and predicts the long term effects of coral bleaching which is caused by oil contamination, temperature changes, low tide,  ultra violet rays, and many other factors.

Intensive dryland farming on the leeward slopes of Haleakala, Maui, Hawaiian Islands: Archaeological, Archaeobotanical, and Geochemical Perspectives

Kassy Bertz's insight:

Maui's history on agricultural practices, weather, characteristics, etc. "Using a combination of archaeological, archaeobotanical and geochemical approaches, we provide evidence that this particular landscape patch was intensively gardened and that gardening left discernible morphological and chemical ‘fingerprints’." The effects of humans on this landscape is obvious especially like many other popular vacation locations.
