There is a predicted King Tide event starting Saturday that continues through next Tuesday. We are expecting to see abnormally high and low tide levels and would love to see any photos you are able to capture of the event! Visit our website to submit your photos: http://nckingtides.web.unc.edu/

Look out for another King Tide event this weekend due to an “almost” supermoon. ✨🌕✨ A supermoon occurs when a full Moon is in Perigee, meaning that it is at its closest point to Earth in its orbit. This weekend, the full Moon will be on the 4th, with the Perigee following closely behind on the 6th. Since the full moon and the Perigee are slightly spaced apart, the phenomenon we observe will be slightly short of a super moon.
This week we crawled out of the mud and on to the beaches to study something a little more predatory. #scavengers #somanybirdstochase #sandissomuchbetter #theresmorebirdsunderhere #preyvspredator #uncims
