- We install monitoring wells in dikes, brownfield sites and other locations to capture data on groundwater and potential contamination.
- Our understanding of fluvial geomorphology, the interactions between streams and soil, is fundamental to our river projects.
- We use computer modeling tools such as AERMOD to integrate source pollutant emission rates, meteorological data, and terrain data and estimate pollutant concentrations at downwind receptor locations.
- Our environmental investigations are the foundation for much of our remediation work, and the first step toward cleaning up contaminated soil.
Fluvial geomorphology is a fundamental component of GeoEngineers’ river projects. Our scientists’ demonstrated expertise in the fundamentals of fluvial dynamics and applied geomorphology gives us a basis for sound, scientifically based evaluations of physical riverine processes, such as historic changes in channel form, current channel stability and river-floodplain interactions. These skills are critically important in GeoEngineers’ river restoration and fish passage barrier removal projects. A healthy, integrated riverine ecosystem must be built around carefully designed channels and flood plains. To create sustainable and fish-friendly designs, our team considers physical characteristics and processes of the watershed, infrastructure design, and the habitat and geomorphology of the river both up and downstream from the project site.
