More about King Tides: A King Tide occurs when the moon, earth, and sun are aligned, and the sun’s gravity helps tug on the oceans a little more, causing the tides to be higher. These extreme high tides give us a glimpse what sea-level rise will look like in our region. Documenting King Tides is an effective way to help coastal communities identify areas prone to flooding, visualize potential impacts of sea-level rise, and start planning for the future. In other words, snap the shore, face the future. #kingtidenh2020
