Over the last few decades, rapid technological progress has helped further our knowledge of the marine environment. If we are to study marine environments accurately, data collection needs to cover every scale of time and space, from the micro-layer of the sea’s surface to deep-sea environments, and com-plex geographic areas, especially land-ocean interfaces. The development… READ COMPLETE ENTRY

Stay up to date with relevant news and press releases, as well as interesting and innovative projects.
An Update on the Importance of Site Investigations for Dredging Projects The development of a successful dredging project relies on a thorough site assessment as the foundation for all other project activities, including developing budgets, schedules, and proposals for bids. Without an understanding of water depth, currents, sediment composition and topography of a site, the… READ COMPLETE ENTRY
Shorline Habitat Mapping with RV Tieton
Shallow water current profiling for a diffuser study in Pacific City Oregon. Gravity used a RDI 1200 fixed station and a River Surveyor to collect current condtions
Latest new release for the GLG partnership Release_2015.12.3_PhDs_GLG-EBLab Release_2015.12.2_Workshop_GLG-EBLab
Gravity conducts a variety of environmental monitoring tasks during dredge and port construction including water quality and noise measurements. Gravity recently conducted hydroacoustic monitoring during pile driving activities for a client on the Willamette River to ensure noise levels did not exceed fish impact criteria.
Gravity Team surveying at Upper Klonaqua Lake
Sedimeter sensors designed and built by Lindorm are a fantastic tool for measuring water column turbidity and siltation. Gravity has been using these sensors over the past year on a number of sites to get long term measurements to be used for morphodynamic and environmental modeling. Gravity uses the Deltares 3D model software suite which… READ COMPLETE ENTRY
