Tools & Tech

EAS relies on these state-of-the-art tools and additional customized technology and equipment to conduct a wide range of field surveys and sampling campaigns tailored to meet individual project needs. Specific tools and applications include the following:

  • Liquid-tip Trident probe. A customized tool for safely and successfully locating groundwater upwellings in offshore waters and sampling and characterizing pore water, surface water, sediment, and soil in complex, normally difficult-to-sample riverbed substrates.
  • Specialized tools and technologies to sample surface water, groundwater/pore water, sediment and soil, plankton, coral and deepwater communities, fish, shellfish, and other macroinvertebrates, and other biota
  • Specialized vessels outfitted with davits, capstans, underwater cameras, radar, sonar, onboard computers, and specialized equipment for various boat operations and project needs.
  • Geographic information systems (GIS) for reporting results in electronic formats with spatial illustration.
  • Global positioning systems (GPS) – high-accuracy (sub-meter), real-time, correction-based spatial mapping tools.
  • Remote monitoring video cameras and other monitoring tools, including bat echolocation detectors.
  • Specialized sampling tools for collecting data on a variety of plants, fish, wildlife, and other biota.
