  • King tides – a glimpse of future sea level rise

    “By 2060 to 2070 we could be experiencing tides of at least this magnitude every month, rather than just twice a year due to climate-change induced sea level rise,” says a research scientist with CSIRO’s Climate Adaptation National Research Flagship, Dr Kathy McInnes. King tides are natural events that happen twice a year. The tides predicted for many parts of the east coast between 8am and ...
