Oceanographic Survey/Benthic Habitat Mapping

ANAMAR offers a range of oceanographic services to support navigation, coastal zone management, fisheries management, and dredged material management projects, including:

Some example services include:

  • Sidescan Sonar
  • Multibeam Sonar/3-D Seafloor Modeling
  • Sub-bottom Profiler Mapping
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Acoustic Doppler Current Profiling
  • Sediment Profile Imaging
  • Department of Defense SDSFIE Geodatabase Generation

ANAMAR manages its own fleet of vessels, enabling rapid mobilization and scheduling flexibility to optimize data collection. ANAMAR's marine survey team includes USCG-licensed boat captains, engineers, mechanics, scientists, and technicians familiar with state-of-the-art marine electronics instruments and communication protocols to ensure safe and efficient surveys.

The graphical modeling and measurement of the marine geophysical and benthic environment provides a distinct advantage during project planning by rapidly illustrating potential impacts, avenues for avoidance and minimization, and beneficial use of disposal material. These datasets and the information they yield help build a spatial framework for determination of functional habitat and potential mitigation opportunities. Using GIS, they can be tied to and displayed with other coastal zone datasets and land-based datasets, providing a comprehensive project view to facilitate departmental and agency coordination. ANAMAR's marine survey team has extensive oceanographic experience including the review of existing data to determine survey needs, survey design, data collection, post-processing, data reduction, and report generation.

  • ANAMAR employs a robust suite of software packages for marine survey data collection and management, including:
  • Hypack Hydrographic Survey Software
  • Hysweep Multibeam Collection and Editing Software
  • SonarWiz.MAP (Sidescan Sonar, Sub-bottom Profiler, and Magnetometer modules)
  • AutoCAD
  • Golden Software's Surfer
  • Marine Magnetics SeaLINK
  • EdgeTech Discover
  • MarineSonics Seascan
  • L-3 Klein SonarPro
  • Spatial Data Standards for Facilities, Infrastructure, and Environment (SDSFIE) Department of Defense Geodatabase Generation Software
