Maryland environmental officials are asking residents to snap pictures of high tides along the state's shoreline this week to document the effects of climate change.
Maryland is among several states participating this year in what's known as the "King Tides Initiative."
"King tide'' is a nonscientific term for exceptionally high tides that occur when the gravitational pulls of the sun and moon align.
Global warming is not responsible for the high tides. But Maryland's Department of Natural Resources says photographing areas that flood during high tides can provide information about areas especially vulnerable to major storms or rising sea levels.
