Extreme High Tide

Copyright © Jocelyn Carlin 2006
Young Tuvaluan men walk over land flooded by the extreme king tide on the edge of the lagoon on Fogafale islet Funafuti. They have never seen the high tide as high as this. On the 28th February 2006 at 5 26pm the high tide was predicted at 3.26 metres but came in at 3.4, the highest ever recorded tide there.
