Marine environmental consulting and survey company CSA Ocean Sciences recently completed a series of geophysical surveys as part of an ongoing campaign of nearshore multidisciplinary marine surveys in support of an offshore wind development project off the Northeastern United States.

Since May 2021, CSA’s research vessel Dolphin and its crew of marine surveyors has conducted over 10,000 hours of fieldwork along a critical export cable route.

CSA is also conducting benthic surveys in collaboration with MMT US. These surveys include the collection and scientific analysis of benthic grab samples, the capture of real-time video of the seafloor, and sediment profile imaging.

These data will help to characterise the benthic habitats along the export cable route and within the lease area.

In addition to the geophysical and benthic survey campaigns, CSA will support the collection of geotechnical data following the completion of the benthic campaign.
