What will the high tide look like in 2050 considering the rising seas? Looking at GIS maps or making a visual estimate from a normal high tide is nothing like seeing the actual water inundation. When the moon is closest to the earth, it is called a supermoon and its gravitational pull creates high tides known as King Tides. These typically occur in December and January and give us a glimpse of what a normal high tide in 2050 will look like.
