A detailed survey is the cornerstone of the scientific process

surveying and mapping

Creating an accurate representation of underwater features is not always as easy as finding a street address. When water conditions are less than ideal, it is important to have a team on your side that can identify the necessary objects the first time. Sea and Shoreline uses surveyor grade DGPS to create the most accurate and reliable maps.

An accurate depiction of the natural resources present is crucial to the permitting process. Sea and Shoreline is experienced at producing high quality bathymetry surveys that incorporate flora and fauna communities. We are very experienced at locating potential seagrass mitigation and restoration sites.

Survey techniques used include modified Braun-Blanquet method, percent cover estimation, short shoot counts, wetland delineations, and UMAM calculations.
