The Virginian-Pilot, WHRO Public Media, the Daily Press and 13News Now are sponsoring Catch the King, an event aimed at measuring the King Tide in our community. Our aim is to gather an army of citizen-scientist data gatherers on Nov. 5. We’ll ask them to go out into their neighborhoods or to places where they work and document just how far the tide reaches using their smartphones to record GPS coordinates as they trace the tide. This information feeds valuable data to scientists building predictive models for near-term events like storm surge and for long-term events such as climate change.
