Biological oceanographic surveys

BMT Oceanica has an excellent understanding of biological and physical oceanographic processes.

BMT Oceanica’s specialist knowledge in biological oceanography includes detailed technical expertise in, measurement of carbon fixation and nutrient uptake processes, evaluation of pelagic food web structure and functioning, and the influence of physical oceanographic features on nutrient regimes and primary production dynamics. 

Specific applications include monitoring of phytoplankton biomass and community structure to evaluate the effects of excess nutrients in coastal waters, and quantifying the influence of light attenuation on rates of primary productivity and vertical biomass distributions for determining impacts of dredging operations.
