Rip Current Survey

Thank you for logging into this survey. The survey is voluntary and any information you provide will be anonymous.

The purpose of this research is to understand which, among a series of graphics, best helps you understand the likelihood of hazardous rip currents. By doing this research, we hope to learn what will best motivate people to protect themselves from rip currents.

We are asking those who are willing to complete the survey that addresses knowledge of rip currents as well as perceptions of various ways to illustrate rip current potential. The amount of time it will take you to complete this survey is approximately 30 minutes.

If you agree to take part in this survey, you will be asked questions that relate to how often you visit the beach, what you know about rip currents and what aspects of several graphical warning products you like and do not like. In addition, we will be collecting some demographic information.

This research is being conducted by an independent contractor on behalf of the National Weather Service. You are not required to take part in this research, and you can stop at any time.

Thank you for taking the time to participate.
