Marine Services :: Environmental Site Characterization
Waterways are critical assets to commerce, industry, and recreation, and provide unique natural habitats for flora and fauna. Managing these resources requires an assessment and understanding of their conditions, uses, and influences on both natural and human-made environments.
DEA Marine Services has conducted environmental investigations throughout the U.S. in support of diverse objectives. These investigations typically include a combination of hydrographic, marine geophysical, and/or oceanographic data acquisition, along with advanced geospatial and geostatistical analyses and expert scientific interpretation.
Each environmental investigation is unique and tailored to meet specific project needs and client objectives.
Project examples include:
- Habitat mapping and monitoring
- Surficial geologic mapping and substrate characterization
- Subsurface geologic mapping and characterization
- Artificial reef placement, construction, and monitoring
- Marine archaeological investigations
- Tide and current analysis
- Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Studies (RI/FS)
- Hydrodynamic modeling and sediment transport studies
- Inundation modeling
- Marine debris mapping and identification
- Unexploded ordnance (UXO) mapping and identification
