Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. The Surface Breaks is a feminist retelling of The Little Mermaid. And there are definitely reflections of The Little Mermaid throughout. I kept finding connections and I couldn’t help but compare the two. I liked some scenes and characters – or types of characters – better in the movie, […]

On Dec[cq comment=”ember”]. 22 and Dec. 23[cq comment=” of 2018″], and on Jan[cq comment=”uary”]. 20 and Jan. 21[cq comment=” of 2019″], waves will crash higher and ocean waters will stretch their fingers of water inland farther than they usually do during high tides.  This will also cause more flooding and hazardous conditions, including rushing water, in low-lying coastal areas. It’s all the result of an occasional but regular event known as king tides, which provides a spectacular show if observed from a safe distance. It also gives us a pretty good idea of how sea level rise will re-shape our coastline in the years ahead. King tides become that way because of the effect of the combined gravitational pull of the sun and the moon, when the latter is closest to Earth. These waters can become more dramatic, and dangerous, if they occur during a storm. Over the past several years there has been a concerted effort by ocean observers, activists, scientists and planners to document the behavior of king tides using photos, in order to get a better idea of how sea level rise will effect coastal properties, human infrastructure[cq comment=”,”] and natural habitats. This, in turn, will help communities plan for, and implement an expensive and complex effort to adapt to, changes that will likely result from the effects of climate change. You can contribute to this effort by documenting the event on any of these days in December or January. You can pick a location, check the timing of the tides using a tide chart. You should be careful when you go, since ocean waters are much more powerful than any one person.  When you take your photos, please share them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and be sure to use the hashtag #KingTides. It is recommended that you take photos at locations with familiar landmarks, to better visualize changes in the high-water level, both between king tides and normal tides, and also to track changes between king tides from year to year. This can help project likely changes in the land-sea interface in future years. If you just want to observe the tides, it’s recommended that you do it safely. Please take extra precautions if you walk along slippery rocks, don’t turn your back to the waves, and always be aware of your surroundings and weather conditions. If you want to go out with a group or learn more, organizations around the state host numerous events every year. In 2017 California’s Ocean Protection Council, which coordinates ocean and coastal science and policy initiatives, released a comprehensive review of sea level rise science, which includes a host of scenarios, and their statistical likelihoods, for various sea level rise projections at different places on the coast. Comparative photos of king tides are helpful to planners who need to visualize, and prepare for, a future that includes structural changes along the shoreline. To learn more, view past photos from around the state and to see a list of king tides events in California you can participate in, visit coastal.ca.gov/kingtides/ .
