King Tides

Bridget Trosin, Coastal Policy Specialist

Ecosystems, infrastructure and people will be impacted by the phenomenon of climate change and rising sea levels. The Witness King Tides website and community events inform coastal dwellers about twice-yearly extreme tides. Citizens’ photos of king tides are posted on the website.


The website helps local communities and decision makers visualize the challenges we will face as the climate changes. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or receiving additional information, please contact Bridget Trosin at bemmett@uw.edu.
