MAI has played a major role in developing the tools needed to support the rapidly growing field of marine environmental management. MAI pioneered the first global environmental impact statement on the impact of low-frequency sound on the marine environment. Today MAI provides environmental support services to the US and foreign government agencies as well as a variety of commercial entities. As with all of MAI’s technical services, our personnel is recognized for both their expertise and a broad base of experience in environmental issues. Our staff members serve on a variety of prestigious panels and oversight committees including the Oil and Gas Producers Joint Industry program, the independent panel on the impact of sound on marine mammals, the Acoustical Society of America panel on the impact of sound on fish and turtles. Our services also include virtual modeling tools for impact assessment, database development, and programmatic support for a full range of environmental assessment issues.
