Snap the shore, see the future!
Help document winter storms, extreme high tides, and El Niño impacts! Do you like to take photos, spend time outside, and are concerned about coastal flooding in our communities? If yes, get involved in one of these great local initiatives:
USC Sea Grant
Urban Tides is a yearlong community based science effort to document current tidal lines and coastal flooding. The initiative has designated a series of beach and wetland locations where the public can take photographs of changing tides and flooding, then upload them into the Urban Tides database.
Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System (SCCOOS)
UCSD Scripps Institution of Oceanography
The goal of Storm Photo is to get the help of citizen scientists like yourself, to document flooding events in Southern California.
California King Tides Initiative
The California King Tides Initiative is asking members of the public to photograph extreme high tides along our local coastline to highlight how coastal homes, infrastructure, and ecological habitats may be affected by future sea level rise.
