MER’s capabilities include water column profiling and sampling, current measurement, quantitative and semi-quantitative underwater video recording, intertidal and subtidal marine resource assessment, marine habitat evaluation and delineation, benthic infauna community analysis, and sediment composition and chemical measurement.  MER is an A-listed contractor with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection for Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA).
