Webinar: California Water Quality Monitoring Collaboration Network Announces New Science & Watershed Stewardship Webinar - Thursday, June 1 (11:30am - 12:30pm)

California Water Quality Monitoring Collaboration Network Announces

New Science & Watershed Stewardship Webinar

Join the California Water Quality Monitoring Collaboration Network along with Holly Rindge from USC Sea Grant for the presentation "Urban Tides Community Science Initiative Captures the Future of our Urban Ocean". Please join us on Thursday June 1, 2017 from 11:30 AM -12:30 PM (PST) for our next presentation in the Citizen Science & Watershed Stewardship Webinar Series. Please see the instructions below to join the webinar. Prior webinars in this series can be viewed at www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvTjRb8VCkp7R68v0h64VrBBYyyJf8z-b.

Topic: Urban Tides Community Science Initiative Captures the Future of our Urban Ocean

The Urban Tides Initiative is USC Sea Grant’s community-based science effort to photo-document current tidal lines, beach erosion, and coastal flooding in Southern California. The initiative has designated a series of beach and wetland locations where the public can take photographs of changing tides, erosion, and flooding. Urban Tides participants follow photo-taking protocols to ensure data is useful. Collectively, these photos are helping researchers, government leaders, and community members to visualize current flooding risks, offering a glimpse of what future sea level rise will look like in our beach communities. Researchers determine the water level from each photo and use it to help ground truth and calibrate scientific models that project flooding and erosion due to sea level rise and coastal storms. These models are critical tools to help communities adapt to rising seas and protect vulnerable infrastructure and people along our coast.
