SERVICES

PERMITTING FOR COASTAL CONSTRUCTION:

Biological surveys, biological design of site and planning for permit requirements, reports and surveys for permits, meetings with permitting agencies. Filing and follow-up with agencies. Co-operative work with engineers and lawyers on permit applications.


COASTAL MITIGATION AND REHABILITATION:

Projects: Mitigation of seagrasses, mangroves, marshes and corals. Cost effective. Tailored to projects' needs: small to large.


COASTAL MAPS

Benthic surveys and maps, vegetation surveys and maps, aerial surveys.Satellite coastal vegetation maps.


ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT:

Writing and background data for EIS or EIA; biological and literature surveys, planning and design with engineers and decision-makers for minimal environmental impact.


SITING AND DESIGN OF CONSTRUCTION FOR MINIMAL ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE:

For projects not requiring EIS, planning of facility design and site selection. Biological surveys, resource maps and information required for permits or designing; reports, mitigation proposals.


TOXICITY TESTING-FOULING STUDIES:

Field and laboratory testing. Mortality, 50% mortality

and dosage-time requirements for safe standards.

Plants and animals (including corals), marine and estuarine.


TEAM ENVIRONMENTAL EFFORTS:

For EIS, EIA or litigation we have a group of subtropical and tropical experts as associates: Oceanographers, hydrologists, geologists, coastal engineers, water chemists, experts on fisheries and marine mammals, ornithologists, benthic biologists. We organize teams; undertake projects where interdisciplinary expertise is necessary.


OIL POLLUTION CLEAN-UP/PLANNING & MAPS: 

Advise on dispersant use, prioritization of resources to protect. Contingency plans and sensitivity maps.

SOCIO-ECONOMIC ANALYSIS:

Impact of social and economic costs, dislocations, alternatives and options associated with construction and development projects to residential, commercial & schools.


HAZARDOUS WASTES:

Site and risk assessment, hazardous wastes, monitoring, modeling for hazardous waste levels, predictions, construction hazardous wastes, testing for hazardous wastecontamination on biological species.


FLOOD PLAIN ASSESSMENTS:

Analysis of impacts of projects on flood plain management.
