King Tides this weekend. – Get out and videotape and photograph them


A good opportunity for citizen science. If you have a local beach that you visit, this weekend, at high tide, is a good time to get out and videotape it. If your camera has GPS, get the exact waypoint for the spot you tape at. Your smartphone should also automatically do that with any shots you take.

We have a few projects that the Marine Resources Committee is tracking, and we’ll be out seeing how they fare.

This is global warming and climate change happening right in front of us. Take the kids out also to teach them what to look for in future decades, when they come back to the same spot.
