In this episode, we’re talking about the exceptionally high king tides and citizen science with Senator Brian Schatz. King Tides were widely reported across the state this year, and UH’s Dr. Mark Merrifield explains how sea level rise is increasing the amount of flooding associated with these high tides. We talk story with Matt Gonser and Maya Walton, to learn more about the Pacific Islands King Tides Project and how you can get involved.
