Sediment Transport Studies
Sediment transport is the movement of solid particles due to the movement of the fluid in which they are immersed. This is typically studied in natural systems, where the particles are rocks (sand, gravel, boulders, etc.) or clay, and the fluid is air, water, or ice.
Sediment transport studies are most often used to know whether erosion or deposition will occur, and in what magnitude it will occur. This information is helpful for engineering design and construction.

Our office staff collected background information about land and sub-sea contours, inlet currents and ice, area biology and regulatory requirements to provide to our client.
