Very hot waters in Vancouver will be torn down by the end of November, part of a natural phenomenon called the tidal queen.
The event takes place twice a year, as the gravitational forces of the sun and the moon intensify each other. In each event you can see a tidal height of up to five meters – one meter higher than a normal ground.
Although the city of Vancouver is already in several places around the Jericho and Locarno beaches, it attracts people to catch the pictures of the coast during the royal season.
The photographs allow experts to compare tides with coastal flood maps so that the city can identify vulnerable areas and prepare them accordingly.
Researchers will also be able to imagine what sea levels will look like as they are affected by climate change.
By 2050, during the winter, a large tidal season will reach the same height as today's daily flag, which means more potential for floods and storms in less distant future.
The royal nature will be held until Friday, November 30, and is expected at the following times:
- Tuesday, November 27 at noon 9.26
- Wednesday 28 November at noon 10:18
- Thursday, 29 November at noon 11:10
- Friday, November 30th at. 11:59
Photos can be shared using the city's high-rise story card and can be uploaded online. Everything you need is a photo with the date, time and location.
During the last tide of the flag that took place in January 2018, almost 400 photos were collected. Additional pictures will only further help protect the city's coastline.
