What is Time & Tide?

Christchurch Harbour Raft Race
Launching for the Raft Race 2013

The Time and Tide project is a community science project, funded by Business Innovation and Skills, that will raise awareness of the tides and the impact they have on our local environment. The project is managed by local Christchurch business Katalytik. We're delighted to be working with Christchurch Activities for Young People (CAYP) and the National Oceanography Centre to engage young people in exploring the tidal system and the harbour environment around Christchurch.

Have you ever wondered why we have a double high tide?  

  • Is it because of the Rivers Stour and Avon emptying into the harbour? 
  • Is it because of the Isle of Wight? 
Over the next 6 months we'll be exploring this phenomenon and then sharing it with you on 21/22 March 2015.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is pleased to support this project which takes science into a community setting. It is our hope as a result of the audience being engaged with this project that they will feel better informed about science issues affecting them and be inspired to be involved further in the future.
