Anchor QEA has extensive experience evaluating and modeling the nearshore marine environment, developing and implementing shoreline and coastal protection projects, evaluating sea level rise effect on coastal resiliency, designing and constructing coastal restoration projects and providing support to waterfront and port development projects. Shoreline stabilization projects are highly interdisciplinary and often require a diverse team for project success. Anchor QEA has an experienced staff of experts in coastal geomorphology, coastal engineering and modeling, nearshore biology, landscape architecture, and planning. Our coastal engineering and modeling group consists of scientists and engineers, several with doctorate degrees in coastal processes and marine sediment transport.

Hancock County Marsh Living Shoreline hancock county marsh living shoreline HANCOCK COUNTY MARSH LIVING SHORELINE Anchor QEA provided engineering design, permitting, and construction assistance services for a living shoreline project that involved preserving and protecting existing habitat while providing areas of secondary shellfish productivity. We assisted with geotechnical, wind-wave, and current analyses to locate and design the segmented breakwater, subtidal reef, and marsh components of the project.

Habitat Development and Storm Recovery habitat development and storm recovery HABITAT DEVELOPMENT AND STORM RECOVERY Anchor QEA supported initial planning, design, and construction management for a beneficial use project. The site was in a bay area where dredge placement areas and associated habitat sustained hurricane damage. We analyzed modeling of intertidal circulation, impacts to circulation and inlet stability, and stability of a dike in the hydrodynamic bay-wide flow regime.
