Leatherman, S. P., 2014. Rip current: Science and threat communication.
There have been major advances in defining the nature of rip currents and how to communicate this threat to the public. The 3rd International Rip Current Symposium built upon previous professional gatherings and further advanced our understanding of these dangerous currents. It is an exciting time to be working in a coastal science that is rapidly developing and evolving with such importance to public safety at the world's foremost recreational areas—surf beaches.
