In recent years, ocean front tracking is of vital importance in ocean-related research, and many algorithms have been proposed to identify ocean fronts. However, all these methods focus on single frame ocean-front classification instead of ocean-front tracking. In this paper, we propose an Ocean-Front Tracking Dataset (OFTraD) and apply GoogLeNet Inception network to track ocean fronts in video sequences. Firstly, the video sequence is split into image blocks, then the image blocks are classified into ocean-front and background by GoogLenet Inception network. Finally, the labeled image blocks are used to reconstruct the video sequence. Experiments show that our algorithm can achieve accurate tracking results.
