SBCK King Tides
King Tides are the highest tides of the year and provide a glimpse into the future to help identify potential impacts of rising sea levels. The National Academy of Sciences predicts that the ocean along California's coast will rise as much as one foot by 2050 and five feet by the end of the century. To help document the potential impacts of rising sea levels, Channelkeeper and other groups throughout California coordinated efforts to support the California King Tides Project. This project helps to identify and catalog coastal areas vulnerable to tidal inundation, and to promote awareness of the specific potential impacts of sea level rise in our region to support climate change mitigation and adaptation policies.
