Citizen Science

Seasonal King Tides (highest of the high tides) happen each year and have been causing flooding in our urban Miami community. SLSC, in collaboration with several partners, hosts yearly events to collect sea level rise data through “citizen science” flood reporting. This information is then aggregated and deposited into a living database to be used to verify frequency and extent of urban flooding in Miami, Florida. The data will inform adaptation solutions to increasing sea level rise concerns for vulnerable communities.
