Key Personnel | Contact Us


Applied Coastal Research and Engineering, Inc. (Applied Coastal) focuses on developing and implementing scientifically defensible solutions to problems in the marine environment.  Our specialty areas include coastal process analyses, coastal engineering, coastal change assessment, coastal data collection and analyses, estuarine circulation water quality modeling, sediment transport modeling, on-line information management, computer mapping and geographic information system (GIS) applications, coastal and marine geology, and coastal zone management. Applied Coastal’s staff is composed of a diverse group of specialists, most with advanced degrees in coastal science or engineering.


For more than 17 years, the principals at Applied Coastal have been assisting government agencies (Federal, State, and local) and commercial clients with coastal project planning, design, permitting, and implementation. State-of-science tools, including GIS applications (computer mapping, image processing, surface modeling, and database design and implementation) and web-based solutions, advanced instrumentation, and physical process numerical models (hydrodynamics, wave transformation, sediment transport, and water quality) are used to effectively support client needs. Applied Coastal provides extensive experience from scientists and engineers who understand project constraints, innovative technologies, and environmental regulation issues. Optimized planning and design of coastal projects benefits from specialized expertise, producing economical and environmentally sound solutions.
