NH King Tide
Grab your cameras and document extreme high tides during the King Tide Photo 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. Photographing 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. Check your local tide chart for the highest tides from October 27-30 and join the contest.
