It's been a while but the NCKT Team is back at it! We installed three gauges last week in Currituck Sound at the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education,  Audubon Pine Island Sanctuary and Center & the Kitty Hawk Woods Reserve! A big thanks to all the citizen scientists who will be collecting water-level data at these locations. #outerbankscenterforwildlifeeducation #pineislandaudubonsanctuary #kittyhawkwoodsreserve #uncims #kingtide #nckingtides
This week, coastal North Carolina is expecting higher and lower than normal water levels due to the New Moon on May 15th and lunar perigee on the 17th!

Join us by photo documenting any unusually high or low water levels through our website, just click "Submit a Photo or Report" to connect to our "What's your water level?" app.

The Town of Oriental,  NC was the most recent recipient of a staff water-level gauge! The Town Dock provided great coverage during its installation on Thursday, May 3rd. If you're stopping by The Bean for a cup of coffee, make sure you check out the new gauge on the town dock and send us a photo and report ( #citizenscience #uncims #kingtide #nckingtides #coastalcarolina
