Snap the Shore, Face the Future

CAW invites citizens to grab their cameras and document extreme high tides during its King Tide Contest to raise awareness of New Hampshire’s rising 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.
