Environmental Services

MAI has played a major role in developing the tools needed to support the rapidly growing field of marine environmental management. MAI pioneered the first global environmental impact statement on the impact of low frequency sound on the marine environment. Today MAI provides environmental support service to US and foreign government agencies as well as a variety of commercial entities.
