Marine Impact Studies

CRZ Management Studies

To control, minimize and protect environmental damage to sensitive coastal stretches from unplanned human interference, The GOI, in 1991 issued a major notification “Coastal Regulation Zone rules”. It is an integrated approach to coastal zone problems and for sustainable development. The structured programme, undertakes the formation of trained manpower capable of redressing identified problems and helping to build capable institutions.

Marine Impact Assessment

The marine impact assessment methodology implements a combined midpoint/damage approach, linking all types of life cycle inventory results. New concepts and methods have been developed, especially for the comparative assessment of human toxicity and ecotoxicity. The measurement of changes in the structure of natural marine communities is widely used for the detection and monitoring of man’s impact on the sea.

Marine Ecological Studies

The scientific study of marine ecology encompasses marine-life habitat, populations, and interactions among organisms and the surrounding environment. The impact of human activity such as medical research, development, agriculture, fisheries, and forestry is also studied under marine ecology. Marine studies address fundamental questions about ecological and evolutionary processes.

Brine Discharge Dispersion

Desalination of seawater produces brine, and discharges it into the sea. It is important to understand how brine is dispersed into the sea so that we can minimize its potential environmental impact. The tidal currents transports brine plumes back and forth before eventually dispersing it into the sea. Unacceptably high salinity in coastal water on both sides of the outfall mandates the optimization the intake location. Modelling Studies on the effect of coastal water depth variations upon mixing and spreading of brine waste continuously being discharged are presented.

Offshore Sampling & Analysis
A diverse range of methods and equipment are used for obtaining samples from the sea and seabed, depending on the material or measurement required.The physical and biological complexity and dynamism of most marine ecosystems results in high spatial and temporal variability in almost any measured parameter. Sampling methods and procedures are carefully analysed and selected so as to take into account the high variability of most marine systems.Further testing is carried out in our laboratory.



Shore Morphology Studies
Dredging and Reclamation of coastal areas will lead to changes in the flow regime and sedimentation. Sediment movement perpendicular to shoreline is responsible for short term beach changes whereas along the shore causes major long term changes of coastal shoreline. Numerical and GIS modelling is carried out to predict the coastline to regulate development in shoreline area and to avoid incremental coastal erosion and other environmental impacts . Shoreline management plan will be proposed considering various meteorological and oceanographical conditions
