Survey data is used to inform decisions throughout a project’s lifecycle. Prior to implementation or construction, it can help determine if an activity is feasible, understand its impact on the environment and inform design.
During and post construction, surveys and monitoring are often requested as part of condition on consent or for integrity assessment purposes.
ABPmer’s fully mobile survey team regularly provide support at all stages of a project’s development, offering the full complement of ecological, environmental, hydrographic, metocean and topographic survey capability.
Whether you need an intensive short-term baseline or a long-term post-consent monitoring campaign, we offer a complete service including comprehensive planning, management, data acquisition, analysis and reporting.
As well as our extensive range of instrumentation for data collection, we operate a fully equipped sediment analysis laboratory (participating in the NMBAQCS Quality Control Scheme for particle size analysis), and provide related facilities for data analysis, processing and presentation.
Team members include inshore hydrographic surveyors, ecologists, environmental scientists, geomorphologists, lab technicians and marine mammal observers.
