Oceans, coasts, and coastal estuaries provide critical economic, environmental, and social services for our clients.  We bring multidisciplinary expertise to develop practical solutions for our clients’ needs, from best practices in forecasting and monitoring, to efficient and effective permitting, to supporting sustainable development in challenging aquatic environments.

Coastal Climate Risk & Resilience

Coastal Climate Risk & Resilience takes shape in a variety of ways, from risk assessment and modeling to resource management and nature based solutions. Integral evaluates the costs, benefits, and trade-offs among different adaptation approaches, leading to sustainable community planning and resource management. We understand how to measure, analyze, and explain the interactive processes driving change today, and we have the tools to project how the interactions will evolve in the future.

offshore energy

The offshore environment presents unique challenges throughout all phases of offshore energy projects.  We support offshore energy projects worldwide with clear planning and implementation of environmental, geophysical, and meteorological and oceanographic assessments.  Together with our clients, we develop insightful project solutions.  By delivering safe, efficient, and practical offshore site investigations, our results support permanent solutions that work.

Oil and Gas | Offshore Wind


As marine renewable energy technologies, such as marine hydrokinetic energy and offshore wind farms, evolve from pilot to commercial scale, accurate assessment of site-specific resources and potential environmental effects is essential for permitting and project implementation.  Our innovative tools quantify the relationships between the environment and device arrays, which help maximize energy production while minimizing environmental and ecological effects.
