King tides may portend future sea level rise
With the arrival of king tides this past weekend, some in the Bay Area may see roads and shorelines go underwater, albeit temporarily.
But there is concern that as sea levels rise in future years, roads, other infrastructure and tidal habitats could succumb to the ocean.
Locally, work is being done by the San Francisco Estuary Partnership to address sea level rise. The Partnership’s overall work is guided by the development and implementation of the Estuary Blueprint, a vision for the estuary’s future.
