Become a Community Scientist

Catch the King is an annual, partnered community science event that invites local volunteers to use a mobile phone app developed by Wetlands Watch, called Sea Level Rise, to collect data about flooding on predicted high water dates in the Fall.

The event's name refers to flooding which occurs during king tides, when the full or new moon is in perigee (its orbit comes closest to the Earth) and elevates sea levels to bring flood waters into the streets of coastal communities during high tide.

King tides are a vision into what lies ahead; the water levels of these "astronomical" events today are predicted to be the "normal" flood events of the future.
