Advising on marine and coastal ecology, biodiversity and physical processes
We provide expertise in a wide range of technical areas, including: intertidal and subtidal benthic ecology; pelagic ecology; phytoplankton and zooplankton; benthic invertebrates; algae; intertidal and subtidal angiosperms; fish; mammals and reptiles; coastal waterbirds and seabirds; non-native species; marine protected areas (MPAs) and other wildlife of conservation importance; oceanography; coastal hydrodynamics; and geomorphology. The scope also includes advice and development of ecosystem and/or ecological modelling tools and physical modelling tools to support marine planning and licensing
We help to inform the Marine Management Organisation’s decisions on the potential risks and impacts to the marine environment arising from exposure to the full range anthropogenic activities; and how risks can be monitored, assessed and mitigated.
HR Wallingford is delighted to be supporting the Marine Management Organisation in all aspects of marine and coastal ecology physical processes, helping to ensure that marine licensing decisions are based on sound science.
