Limnoterra, Inc. relies on the knowledge of a broad spectrum of natural sciences disciplines. In fact, all natural scientists possess cross-over knowledge of other scientific areas that compliment their primary expertise. Our focus has always been the aquatic systems of the Atlantic Coastal Plain. We know the coast!
We have developed professional relationships with scientists from many related disciplines and utilize a multidisciplinary approach to ensure that each project receives the complete attention of all required professionals.
For over 25 years we have provided a high level of customer satisfaction coupled with natural resources consulting in the southeast portion of the United States.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Sedimentology - Sediment transport and deposition is a surface formation and alteration process that is reflected in the signature of the landscape. Whether we are evaluating barrier
island migration during the Holocene or lake bank erosional processes and stability, sedimentological knowledge is always critical to our projects.
Geology - Geology in Natural Resources consulting? Absolutely, the best ecologists are those with geology knowledge; the best geologists are those with ecological knowledge. In southwest Florida an understanding of the limestone deposition and characteristics is fundamental.
Limnology - Where do we begin? Lake and surface water sciences is the foundation of our professional services. Immersion in study and professional application of limnological principles in natural lake systems has provided an excellent foundation for understanding how man-made lakes exist in the context of a community watershed.
Hydrology - "All moving water moves sediment". Large fast flowing mountain streams move cobble and boulders. Our small lakes and ponds move small-grained sediment through wind-driven waves. Surface hydrology and knowledge of the regional surficial aquifer is necessary to enhance and understanding of other scientific disciplines.
Ecology - The Coastal Plain physiographic province stretches from the mid-Atlantic states around Florida and throughout all Gulf States. Ecological systems are surprisingly similar in many of these areas (however different in sub-tropical south florida). Limnoterra professionals have decades of experience in the fields of Estuatine Ecology, Conservation Ecology, Forrest Ecology, Microbial Ecology, Wetlands Ecology and many other sub-disciplines.
Soils Sciences - Knowledge of soils is essential for those who are working in the field. Experienced field scientists use knowledge of local soils taxonomy to understand vicinity drainage, hydrology and landscape modification, and to support and strengthen ecological understanding.
