ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY 


The SEACAMS Environmental Quality team are specialists in the areas of pollution, ecosystem health and environmental impact assessments. We have expertise in a range of areas and a few of our previous studies include:

  • assessing the impact of human biological waste on enclosed marine areas;
  • determining the causes of corrosion to the hull of vessels in Swansea marina;
  • examining pathogens in the marine environment.

To help you, we can analyse:

  • water quality, including nutrient loading;
  • sediments;
  • plant and animal tissues

for:

  • metal contamination;
  • persistent organic pollutants;
  • endocrine disrupters from pharmaceuticals;
  • bacterial and viral pathogens.

Additionally we can help you with:

  • environmental impact assessments for renewable energy developments or other installations needing environmental approval;
  • siting and assessment of outfalls, discharge monitoring and storm water management;
  • beach assessment for blue flag status.

We are not limited to these research areas so please get in contact with us if you’d like to know more about our capabilities.
