With over 20 years of experience in marine sediment analysis, we produce high-quality and accurate data for our clients, helping them to gather key information on the condition of their marine environment.

RPS supports environmental pre and post operational surveys, dredging operations and planning surveys. Our expertise in sediment analysis conducted in state-of-the-art laboratory settings, plays an important role in ensuring that the quality of our survey results can be relied upon for regulatory requirements.

Our team have over 20 years of experience in analysing trace levels of pollutants in the context of the marine benthic environment. We employ the right techniques required to guarantee the production of reliable and fully quality assured data. We take part in the following marine quality assurance schemes and operate to Oslo and Paris Commission (OSPAR) and the Helsinki Commission (HELCOM) guidelines:

  • Quality Assurance of Information for Marine Environmental Monitoring in Europe performance testing scheme (QUASIMEME)
  • NE Atlantic Marine Biological Analytical Quality Control Scheme (NMBAQC)
  • NORMAN network

Pre and post operational survey

We can provided detailed trace analysis for marine sediments collected from the sea bed. This can support baseline surveys or Environmental Impact Assessments used for planning and installing new structures, as well as providing analysis of sediments and discharge waters during asset life and finally at the decommissioning and post operation survey stage.
