The University of Hawai'i Sea Grant College Program's Hawai'i and Pacific Islands King Tides Project needs your help to document today's high water level events, also known as King Tides, to better understand tomorrow's impacts from sea-level rise and other coastal hazards. You - our citizen scientists - can add to our dataset by photographing the King Tides at various places throughout Hawai‘i and the Pacific and submitting your photos through a smartphone app, which will record the time and location of your photos.
This publicly accessible online database informs research, policy, and decision making across the state and Pacific region. You can see these critical contributions to our collective place-based knowledge in our public dataset and on our web map.
We will let you know through this e-newsletter when and how you can contribute to the King Tides project, and we will send updates about how your photos and data have furthered our understanding of sea-level rise in Hawai'i and the Pacific. You can also keep up with the King Tides at our website and on Hawai'i Sea Grant's Facebook page. Mahalo!
