Maritime research and projects are not limited to just offshore and underwater surveys. In many cases, maritime projects require shore-based operations prior to or in support of offshore work. Because of this, Thompson Maritime Consulting, LLC, offers a series of shore-based services that provide the needed supplemental research for underwater operations, but also provides consultation for public and community outreach programs. In doing so, the general public is more aware of the valuable resources along our coastlines, in our rivers and lakes, for the purpose of preserving them for future generations.
