Description

this is a picture of the king high tide crashing against this restaurant on the sand in la jolla shores. the king tide was at the peak in this photo at +7feet . is this a result of higher tides due to global warning.Today many coastal communities are seeing more frequent flooding during high tides. As sea level rises higher over the next 15 to 30 years, tidal flooding is expected to occur more often, cause more disruption, and even render some areas unusable .

    Hello Kdilliard. I work for The Nature Conservancy’s Coastal Resilience program and we just launched an initiative to monitor coastal flooding as influenced by El Nino, similar to and in coordination with the King Tides project (check out our site: http://coastalresilience.org/project-areas/california/elninoca/). We were wondering if you would be interested in allowing us to use your photo (with ample credit of course) when describing this initiative. If you have any interest in this, please email me at elninoca@tnc.org. We would really appreciate it – this photo is GREAT because it illustrates the problem but is also incredibly striking and artistic.

    In line with MrsKLeo’s comment, I would also love to use this photo for a publication. I work with the Equinox Project (http://www.equinoxcenter.org/) and I think this a beautiful and telling photo about sea rise and climate change. If you have any interest getting credit for being published, contact researchfellow2@equinoxcenter.org

      KDillard – I also work with the Equinox Project. We’re a nonprofit, nonpartisan San Diego research entity measuring sustainability indicators. Our publication, the Quality of Life Dashboard is released each year to show how the indicators are measuring up. Any chance you have a HQ (300 dpi) copy of this shot we can use (with proper credit) in our publication? Please contact me at Stephen.Heverly@energycenter.org. Thanks!
