Automated rip current detection with region based convolutional neural networks

This paper presents a machine learning approach for the automatic identification of rip currents with breaking waves.

From Lifeguards to AI: Advancing Rip Current Forecasting Through New Detection Methods

Observing rip currents can be extremely challenging. The energetic and constantly changing surf zone coupled with a lack of infrastructure, complicates relying on traditional in situ observations in most circumstances. These challenges have resulted …
