California King Tides Initiative: Glimpses into the Future of Rising Sea Levels
King Tides are the highest predicted high tides of the year. Combined with winter storm events, these high water levels can show us how rising sea levels due to climate change might impact our communities in the future. The California King Tides Initiative is inviting the public to shoot (from a safe distance) and share photos online using social media to build a living record of current and future coastal areas vulnerable to inundation. Marina Psaros from the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve discusses how these photographs help us visualize the future impacts from sea level rise in your local community and all along the California coastline.
