Woods Hole Group contributes new technologies related to measuring and modeling the marine environment for a diverse client base. The company has proven the ability to evolve and sustain a business centered on the coastal and ocean zone for more than 25 years. WHG focuses on: Coastal Sciences, Engineering & Planning; Applied Ecology; and Oceanography and Measurement Systems. Ocean observations are at the hear-t of WHG’s The Tech:, including real-time data for safe and efficient marine operations. Teams design, build, deploy, and operate meteorological and oceanographic buoys, moorings, and platform-based systems. The WatchDog metocean system improves data quality and reduces maintenance costs. WHG contracts with individual port operators and NOAA to measure water level, current speed, water quality, and bridge air gap to ensure safe navigation and improve maritime commerce. Archived data provide the basis for engineering design criteria and scientific data analysis. WHG has proprietary software to turn raw data into the information required by maritime decision-makers. As a turnkey engineering company for coastal infrastructure (beach nourishment, coastal structures, wetlands restoration and dredging), numerical models are applied to understand existing conditions and optimize engineering designs.
