|Abstract:||The summer of 2017 broke sea level records and had an unprecedented number of|
nuisance flooding events. The King Tides Project provided a photo database of nuisance
flooding events in Mapunapuna. Multiple contributions to sea level were observed during
these events, including Rossby waves, eddies, the inverted-barometer effect, and tides.
High tides were found to be the primary indicator of when a nuisance flooding event may
have occurred, although this was not always the case. The results from this study can be
applied to the King Tides database to expand the information on these events by
corroborating their photographic metadata with physical quantifications.
