CSA and Okeanus Arrange Survey Spread for Harvey Aftermath

CSA Ocean Sciences (CSA) and Okeanus Science & Technology are working together to stage a full-range of specialized survey and monitoring equipment in Louisiana to deploy in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

The setup should help evaluate the storm’s impact on coast lines, waterways, bayous, ship channels and terminals, marine infrastructure, and oil and gas related facilities located on or near the water.

“Hurricanes often dramatically impact coastlines and waterways in affected areas, deposit debris into lakes, harbors, and ship channels, and create hazards to navigation that can leave waterways and adjoining infrastructure out of commission for an extended period,” said Gordon Stevens, vice president and general manager of CSA.

“With Okeanus, we have emergency response personnel and equipment standing by in Houston and Louisiana to assist local companies and organizations with geophysical surveys and environmental impact assessments in the aftermath of the storm.”

CSA is staging the following types of equipment for deployment, as required: Small survey vessels; Side-scan, multibeam, and single beam sonars; Subbottom profilers; Magnetometers; Observation remotely operated vehicles (ROVs); Unmanned surface vessels (USVs).
