MTR100: ASL Environmental

Marine Technology Reporter

ASL Environmental Sciences taps more than 38 years of experience in oceanographic, acoustic, remote sensing and ice research products and scientific consulting services, to provide innovative solutions and services in the areas of ice studies, metocean measurements, bio-acoustic backscatter, sediment transport and numerical modeling.

Making measurements in the harsh ocean environment demands skill and experience. ASL Environmental Sciences specializes in the physical measurement of the world’s oceans, lakes and rivers. The company has conducted more than 950 government and commercially-funded scientific and technical projects, some valued at over $1.7 million, in environments ranging from the Arctic to the sub-tropics. This unique storehouse of experience is available for the toughest measurement problems, on its own or as part of long-standing interdisciplinary teaming arrangements.
ASL’s instrumentation group has developed leading-edge acoustic instruments for oceanographic and hydro-electric flow measurements, and for ice, wave, and water column profiling. To date, ASL has designed and built about 350 individual autonomous echosounders for the recording of bio-acoustic backscatter and for the measurement of ice draft (proxy for ice thickness) for 6-month to 24-month deployments in some of the planet’s most isolated areas.
