Oregon King Tide Project Needs Your Photos

Oregon KT Logo

Every year in early winter, high tides in Oregon are higher than usual. These extreme high tides, commonly called “King Tides,” occur at a few specific times during the year when the moon is closest to the Earth. These tides are being documented to help visualize and understand the impacts of sea level rise in the coming decades. You are invited to participate in the project by taking pictures of areas impacted by this season’s king tides and sharing your photos on their flickr page.

Winter 2013-2014 Oregon King Tide Dates: December 2-4; December 31-January 2; January 29-31. Download this year’s King Tide poster and help us spread the word!
