Rip Current

Science

Description

You might have heard them referred to as “undertow” or “rip tides,” but these ocean phenomena are actually rip currents. Rip currents are narrow currents in the surf zone that move quickly away from shore, ranging from 50-100 feet wide, and can extend 100 yards or more offshore. That makes them dangerous and potentially deadly. Original video source: oceantoday.noaa.gov/ripcurrentscience HOW TO PLAY: After watching the video, read each statement carefully.
