If you've been along the coast this week, you may have noticed some of the highest high tides and lowest lows - a natural phenomena called "King Tides." These tidal events often make the news in the winter as they can lead to flooding when combined with high waves or seasonal storms, however they can happen year-round. This or video was taken at Capistrano Beach in Orange County, CA by Laura Engeman, who is jointly appointed as an extension specialist with California Sea Grant and with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation. Check local tide charts to see the King Tides for yourself (always use good judgment and make safe choices for viewing locations) and learn more on our website: bit.ly/3d3MqIt Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System ...

Happy World Oceans Day! Check out our colleagues at Scripps Institution of Oceanography installing a new Imaging FlowCytobot (IFCB) on the Del Mar Mooring, developed at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and manufactured by McLane Research Labs., that uses image recognition to identify phytoplankton species and biomass through a camera in real-time! A total of 10 IFCBs will be deployed along California's coast by the end of summer and will revolutionize how we monitor for Harmful Algal Bloom events ... See MoreSee Less

A new paper published in Natural Hazards, "An early warning system for wave-driven coastal flooding at Imperial Beach, CA" led by Professor Mark Merrifield, Director of Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation (CCCIA), and his colleagues at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCLA Engineering, and University of Hawaii at ManoaAn early warning system for wave-driven flooding at Imperial Beach has been developed using regional wave and water level observations, historical beach surveys, and a numerical runup model. Observations are used to calibrate and validate the approach. A crucial element for predicting TWL is the runup model, which transforms incident wave energy to the swash zone. As computing resources improve, real-time SWASH simulations could be incorporated into the warning system, thus reducing error in the forecasts associated with the IPA. Until then, the IPA provides a useful surrogate for SWASH.doi.org/10.1007/s11069-021-04790-x ... See MoreSee Less

Please join us on May 11 at 11 PT for Resilience for the Nation's Oceans, Coasts, and Great LakesThe briefing will highlight the power of the partnership between these programs in the Pacific Northwest and in the Great Lakes. Joe Schumacker, Resources Scientist with the Quinault Indian Nation and NANOOS Board member, will discuss how working with NANOOS, Sea Grant and the NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries have assisted the tribes with fisheries, harmful algal blooms and more. Joining him on the panel will be Mayor Justin Nickels from Manitowoc, WI who will talk about the benefits of the proposed sanctuary.attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5460056410931855120 ...
