"This has been an unusual summer," said Stephen Dickson, a marine geologist with the Maine Geological Survey. "I don't recall in 20 years this being quite as popular a topic. There's certainly been a lot of discussion."
That discussion may continue well into the Labor Day weekend, traditionally the last big beach weekend in Maine.
Dickson said king tides - especially high tides, sometimes 2 or 3 feet higher than average - in the past week are remobilizing seaweed that is likely to wash ashore just in time for the holiday weekend.
The increase in seaweed stems from four factors: wind direction, spring tides, neap tides and surf. Spring tides - which have the largest range and occur around the full and new moons - create high water levels that can move seaweed from rocky shores, setting the wrack free to wash onto sandy beaches. There were many days in July with high water levels, Dickson said.
Dickson said a period of moderate waves in mid-July may have aided in stranding seaweed on the beach just as the tidal range was declining, leaving seaweed lingering high on beaches for days.

But we cannot wait," Steve Dickson, a coastal geologist with the Maine Geological Survey, said in a statement. Dickson has produced maps on bluff stability and sea-level rise predictions aimed at helping inform property owners.

The highest storm tide - the combination of tide level and storm surge - in Portland was recorded during the blizzard of 1978, said Stephen Dickson, a marine geologist with the Maine Geological Survey who will speak at the conference. On Feb. 7, 1978, a 2.5-foot storm surge combined with an 11.6-foot tide resulted in a total storm tide of 14.1 feet, he said.
But geologists recently learned that there have been storm surges of 4, 5 and 6 feet through the decades in Portland, according to tide gauge records going back to 1912. The highest storm surge on record was 6.5 feet, on Jan. 24, 1921, but that occurred during low tide so its impact was minimal.
"If we had a surge like that at high tide, we would have waters where we never had them before. And then we would have our own Sandy," Dickson said.

Unprecedented erosion up and down the New England coastline may be to blame for the unusual currents, said Stephen Dickson, a marine geologist for the Maine Geological Survey said. Strong storms wore away at beaches earlier this year in ways not seen for 20 years, he said.
"It's a possibility," Dickson said.
