King Tides 2019

King Tides are predictable, larger than normal high tide events that occur a few times a year when the moon is closest to the earth. A more scientific name is perigean spring tides. King Tides are interesting because they help to illustrate what more normal high tide events will look like in the future as sea level rise becomes more pronounced.
