King Tide photos

Photos from the 2011 king tides are posted on the Washington Department of Ecology’s King Tide photostream (Flickr). Photos from last January are included. You can search for photos taken in a particular place, such as ‘Bellingham’ or “Marine Park’. Several photos were submitted by subscribers to Northwest Geology Field Trips. These photos of high tide levels will serve as baseline comparisons as sea levels rise during climate change.

The next king tides will be later this month. Go to this map to see when these tides will occur- timing is different across the region.

  1. Wow, like a mini-vacation around Puget Sound via flickr. Does anybody salvage all those trees and logs? No? Can I have them?

    • Hey Gbone2000, good point. I hadn’t thought about the tour aspect of those king tide photos. As to the salvage idea, go for it. Ought to keep you busy for a while.
