mikegarrison Posted July 15, 2021 Share Posted July 15, 2021 (edited) I think I should make clear here that I did not start this thread. This thread was originally posted in a different thread. Someone posted about a NASA analysis about flooding 18 years from now. I responded to that. Then the threads were split out. And then, later, the person who made the initial post deleted their post (or asked for it to be deleted). This left it looking like I had started this thread. The moon has an 18.6 year orbital "wobble". It always has this -- it's not a special event. However, this means that for about 9 years tides are a little lower than normal, and about 9 years tides are higher than normal. We're currently in one of the 9-year higher tide cycles. The problem, though, is that due to climate change our sea levels have been rising. Due to this, they are warning that in about 18 years from now (in the *next* high-tide cycle) we'll probably see a lot of serious tidal flooding, because of almost 20 more years of sea level rise.
