Coastal Environmental Analysis, LLC, has been conducting biological, ecological and water quality research, monitoring and analysis in coastal GA, SC and FL since 1998. CEA offers a full line of service that includes: field sampling, analysis and monitoring; lab analysis; chemical, biological, microbiological sampling and analysis. CEA conducts studies in a variety of coastal habitats including ocean beaches, estuaries, salt marshes, coastal rivers, tidal creeks, storm water systems including canals and drainage ditches. CEA has the capabilities to collect samples and conduct studies in a diversity of habitats ranging from ditch culverts to estuaries to open beaches.
Coastal Environmental Analysis utilizes state of the art, research-quality and EPA approved methods and equipment in the field and lab. A partial list of water quality parameters analyzed and quantified on a regular basis includes the following:
Turbidity (water clarity)
Dissolved Oxygen and percent Oxygen saturation
Nutrients (Nitrate, Phosphate)
Microbial analyses conducted on a regular basis include:
- Enterococci bacteria (salt water areas)
- E. coli bacteria (fresh water areas)
- Biological assessments (marine, estuarine, coastal)
Coastal Environmental Analysis is often employed to collect water, sediment, fish and shellfish samples for analyses including ecological statistics, and pollutant concentrations such as heavy metals, Poly-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH’s), and PCB’s.
High quality sampling and sample analysis is only part of what CEA offers. CEA also performs:
In addition, CEA can also assist in designing a monitoring program for optimal efficiency and effectiveness.
CEA has been successful in developing grant proposals for clients including coastal municipalities to gain funding support for their projects. (See "Recent Projects")
