Our coastal engineers keep themselves ahead of the curve by staying at the forefront of research on climate change and sea level rise.
We understand the significant threat posed by eustatic sea level rise and coastal land subsidence to flood protection structures, ecosystems, and coastal communities. By leveraging its arsenal of numerical tools including a wide library of digital elevation models, extensive knowledge base and experience in the field, we are able to analyze the impact of storm surge on low-lying areas, evaluate the resiliency of shorelines against sea level rise and acute wave action and thereby provide a comprehensive risk assessment of any coastal zone or other low-lying areas.
