Machine Learning (ML) based algorithms have found significant impact in many fields of engineering and sciences, where datasets are available from experiments and high fidelity numerical simulations. Those datasets are generally utilized in a machine learning model to extract information about the underlying physics and derive functional relationships mapping input variables to target quantities of interest. Commonplace machine learning algorithms utilized in Scientific Machine Learning (SciML)

We discuss the applications of machine learning algorithms for different problems such as wave height prediction, calculation of wind loads on ships, damage detection of offshore platforms, calculation of ship added resistance, and various other applications in coastal and marine environments. The details of the data sets including the source of data-sets utilized in the ML model development are included. The features used as the inputs to the ML models are presented in detail and finally, the methods employed in optimization of the ML models were also discussed. Based on this comprehensive analysis we point out future directions of research that may be fruitful for the application of ML to the ocean and marine engineering problems.
