Explore King Tides Photo Submissions

With the support of dedicated citizen scientists, the Hawaiʻi and Pacific Islands King Tides Project has collected more than 2,600 photos throughout the past years. Led by the University of Hawaiʻi Sea Grant College Program, the project strives to document high water level events, specifically King Tides, in order to better understand future impacts from sea level rise and other coastal hazards. All photo contributions are easily accessible on an interactive map viewer. Zoom into your area of interest and explore the documented observations, impacts, and changes along the shoreline. Supported by Hawaiʻi Sea Grant and the Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center, PacIOOS built this map viewer to faciliate easy access.

Heads up! Summer King Tides are coming up July 2nd and 3rd as well as July 31 and August 1, 2019. The Hawaiʻi and Pacific Islands King Tides Project needs your help to capture high water level events in Hawaiʻi — keep an eye out for upcoming event announcements. Photos can be submitted online.
