We found that under the low-emission scenario SRES B1, the coral habitats will also shrink in the northern region by the reduced Ωarag but to a lesser extent than under SRES A2, and in contrast to SRES A2, no bleaching will occur in the southern region. Therefore, coral habitats in the southern region are Y.

Under SRES A2 and B1, atmospheric CO2 will reach about 828 and 540 ppm, respectively, by the end of the century. 8 , and the model data were interpolated onto a regular 1 Â 1 grid to match the spatial resolution of the observational data for the western North Pacific (the region bounded by 24 –48 N, 118 –157 E). To produce the future monthly projection data for SST and Ωarag during this century under SRES A2 and B1, we added the modeled annual mean SST and Ωarag anomalies for 2000–2099 to the monthly observation-based climatologies, following Yara et al.
