King Tide Media Event

A changing climate greatly impacts Maine’s coastal communities. Vulnerable areas, such as Camp Ellis, are already experiencing challenges associated with sea level rise, and more frequent and intense storm events. In an effort to measure these changes and respond accordingly a new tide gauge has been installed by the USGS on the Saco River.

New Wave Buoy in Cape Cod Bay

A new high-tech wave-monitoring buoy, supported by state and federal agencies, was recently deployed in Cape Cod bay. The buoy will provide sea-state information in Cape Cod Bay to improve safety and efficiency of marine transportation as mariners approach or exit the Cape Cod Canal. Please see MassDEP Press Release for more information about this project.
