Morgan & Eklund, Inc (M&E), a sister company of CSA Ocean Sciences Inc., is a hydrographic survey company specializing in coastal nearshore mapping of ports, harbors, and infrastructure. M&E today announced the successful completion of a multibeam and side-scan sonar survey to map and monitor an artificial reef offshore Fort Pierce along the Treasure Coast of eastern Florida. A post-construction survey was completed entirely using a SeaRobotics (SR) “Surveyor Class” autonomous surface vessel (ASV). The objective of the survey was to verify seafloor conditions and accurate placement of artificial reefs.
As if 2020 weren’t turbulent enough already, recent reports released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Colorado State University suggest that communities along the U.S. eastern seaboard should brace themselves for more troubling news: both have upgraded their initial forecasts for the Atlantic hurricane season.
