Figure 5. Average African dust concentrations measured in Miami and Barbados (Windward Islands) and major events that occurred in reef organisms in the Florida-Caribbean region. Are they related? Data for 1965 to 1986 are from Prospero and Nees (1986). Data from 1987 to 1996 are courtesy of J.M. Prospero. African dust events can readily be observed on the Internet from NASA SeaWiFS and TOMS satellite data (http://coastal.er.usgs.gov/african_dust/ and http://seawifs.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEAWIFS.html).
