Geodynamics selected to support NOAA

January 16, 2020

Geodynamics has been awarded a 5-year contract to provide hydrographic surveying services to the NOAA Office of Coast Survey. As one of only seven firms selected nationwide, Geodynamics will survey priority areas to help maintain the safety of maritime commerce, recreational boating, and natural ecosystems.  After five years of working in close partnership with eTrac under the previous OCS hydrographic surveying contract, Geodynamics is excited to expand our role support NOAA’s mission to map the ocean floor.   

In addition to hydrographic surveys to support NOAA Nautical Chart updates, Geodynamics has also completed emergency clearance surveys following hurricane Dorian.  We participated in task orders in the Gulf of Mexico, around the Florida Keys, in the Atlantic and the Great Lakes since 2015.

US HYDRO – 2017

March 30, 2017

Geodynamics recently attended the biannual US Hydro conference held in Galveston, Texas. This is an important industry event hosted by The Hydrographic Society of America (THSOA) that includes a wide-ranging technical program, extensive workshops and training events, and exhibit hall.  In addition to participating as a hydrographic services exhibitor, Geodynamics also co-hosted an impromptu poolside social gathering for conference attendees.  Team members Dave Bernstein, Ben Sumners, and Chris Freeman presented technical presentations about management and analysis of sidescan sonar data, seamless topo-bathy surveys for shoreline management, and the use of bathymetric radar for detection of navigational shoaling.  And as a sponsor and organizer of the Student Outreach program, Chris Freeman coordinated an event to introduce students of hydrography to leaders in the field.  This program supports students’ attendance at the conference, and also provides important mentorship opportunities for future career guidance.
