  • Rip current dynamics on an embayed beach

    Gallop, Shari L. (The University of Waikato, 2009)
    Rip currents are fast, narrow currents which traverse the surf-zone in the seaward direction. The most important effect of rip currents is that they can pose a deadly hazard to beach-users. Rip currents and their interaction ...
  • Staying safe on a surf beach: What are rip currents?

    Pitman, Sebastian J.; Gallop, Shari L.; Brander, Robert W. (Frontiers Media SA, 2019)
    Everyone enjoys visiting the beach and playing or swimming in the water, but sometimes, waves breaking on beaches can create strong, narrow currents that can pull you out of your depth and into deeper water, where you may ...
  • Steps to improve gender diversity in coastal geoscience and engineering

    Vila-Concejo, Ana; Gallop, Shari L.; Hamylton, Sarah M.; Esteves, Luciana S.; Bryan, Karin R.; Delgado-Fernandez, Irene; Guisado-Pintado, Emilia; Joshi, Siddhi; Da Silva, Graziela Miotda; De Alegria-Arzaburu, Amaia Ruiz; Power, H annah E.; Senechal, Nadia; Splinter, Kristen (2018)
    Robust data are the base of effective gender diversity policy. Evidence shows that gender inequality is still pervasive in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Coastal geoscience and engineering (CGE) ...
  • Storm-driven changes in rip channel patterns on an embayed beach

    Gallop, Shari L.; Bryan, Karin R.; Coco, Giovanni; Stephens, S.A. (Elsevier, 2010)
    This paper introduces a semi-automatic computer algorithm designed to detect rip current channels in video imagery. As a case study, this method is applied to 3.3 years of video data from an embayed beach to demonstrate ...
