Get ready to float along the California coast as we visit several State Beaches in southern, central, and northern California during this special earth and climate science PORTScast! Students will have the chance to observe exceptional high tide events in real-time as they learn about:
-- What causes King Tides: The combined gravitational pull of the sun and moon on our ocean
-- How King Tides allow us to see into the future: They give us a glimpse of future sea level rise caused by climate change
-- How to safely observe and enjoy the King Tides which occur the weekend of Jan 21-22 along the California coast
-- How to participate as a community scientist and collect data for the California King Tides Project
Teachers are encouraged to utilize the FREE K-12 educational resources compiled by the California Coastal Commission at: https://www.coastal.ca.gov/kingtides/educators.html
