Great photo shared with us from Ocean Springs, MS (facing the Biloxi bridge). This photo was taken during tropical storm Cindy on July 21, which brought 18.4 inches of rain to the area and storm surges between 2 to 4 ft.
Our techs got a bit unRULERly in the marsh yesterday. #dadjokes #marshlife #rulersquad #leonardodicaprio

Beware of soupy marshes! We almost lost a technician in the field today today while studying the ecological effects of sea-level rise. #science #soupy #hungryhungrymarsh #marshlife
View of Cape Lookout from Shakleford Banks at low tide this weekend. The King Tide meant extra shallow water and plenty of shelling opportunities! #kingtide #capelookout #shacklefordbanks #n#crystalcoast #sobx

Today we have a super new moon and lunar perigee coinciding with the king tide, with a higher than normal tide expected around 7:50pm. We've already had some great submissions this week so make sure you capture any high water you see and submit you photos to our website! nckingtides.web.unc.edu @leonardodicaprio
