  • Beachgoers' ability to identify rip currents at a beach in situ

    Pitman, Sebastian J.; Thompson, Katie; Hart, Deirdre E.; Moran, Kevin; Gallop, Shari L.; Brander, Robert W.; Wooler, Adam (Copernicus Publications, 2021)
    Rip currents (“rips”) are the leading cause of drowning on surf beaches worldwide. A major contributing factor is that many beachgoers are unable to identify rip currents. Previous research has attempted to quantify ...
  • A comparison of beach nourishment methodology and performance at two fringing reef beaches in Waikiki (Hawaii, USA) and Cadiz (SW Spain)

    Muñoz-Perez, Juan J.; Gallop, Shari L.; Moreno, Luis J. (MDPI AG, 2020)
    Fringing reefs have significant impacts on beach dynamics, yet there is little research on how they should be considered in beach nourishment design, monitoring, and conservation works. Thus, the behavior and characteristics ...
  • The influence of reef topography on storm-driven sand flux

    Bosserelle, Cyprien; Gallop, Shari L.; Haigh, Ivan D.; Pattiaratchi, Charitha B. (MDPI AG, 2021)
    Natural formations of rock and coral can support geologically controlled beaches, where the beach dynamics are significantly influenced by these structures. However, little is known about how alongshore variations in ...
  • 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 ...
