Photos requested for "King Tides"

Monday, December 26, 2011

According to our News Partner KING 5, King Tide is the term for unusually high tides which occur 
"when the sun and moon’s gravitational pull reinforce one another. The Washington state Department of Ecology says the tides 'offer a glimpse of how rising sea levels from global climate change could affect the state’s coastal areas.'"
The Department of Ecology is asking for people to share their photos documenting these tides. 

They offer the following tips for taking photos:
  • To better illustrate the impacts of the high winter tides, we recommend taking photos in areas where the high water levels can be gauged against familiar landmarks such as sea walls, jetties, bridge supports, dikes, buildings, roads or other infrastructure.
  • Please do not include people in your photos
All the information is on their website.
