Coastal Resiliency and Shoreline Management

Coastal Resiliency

Coastal Resiliency

Coastal Resilience is an increasingly important part of coastal community planning and infrastructure. Building and restoring the natural and man-made ability of coastal communities to resist the impacts of short term hazardous events such as hurricanes, coastal storms and flooding requires a sound understanding of the physical processes at work before, during and after solutions are implemented.

Partrac GeoMarine is an experienced provider of data to stakeholders where an understanding of baseline and post-project conditions is required.

Partrac GeoMarine can provide the following services:

  • Metocean services/oceanographic survey
  • Baseline environmental survey
  • Sediment & scour monitoring
  • Sediment tracing and sediment transport studies
  • Consultancy (scour, seabed mobility, sediment movement)

Shoreline Management

Coastal development and tourism has meant that shoreline management, to a greater or lesser degree, is now the norm in urban centers of population that adjoin the US coastline.

Partrac GeoMarine has a strong track record of working with shoreline managers and stakeholders, providing data for use in beach nourishment and natural coastal protection schemes, as well as quantifying and understanding coastal sediment movement (scour, erosion and deposition) caused by coastal protection structures and ports, harbors, inlets and channels that may impede natural sediment movement along the coastline.

Partrac GeoMarine can provide the following services:

  • Metocean services/oceanographic survey
  • Sediment and scour monitoring
  • Beach profiling
  • Sediment Tracing/Particle Tracking
  • Consultancy (scour, seabed mobility, sediment movement)
