Marine Archaeology

Geomara has evolved significantly from its origins as a marine archaeological and environmental service provider. However, this sector remains one of our key competencies. We have a proven track record in providing ultra high resolution archaeological and environmental maritime services to projects throughout the world.

We work extensively with the Qatar Museum Authority and the Underwater Archaeology Unit of Irelands National Monuments agency.  We provide them with expertise, personnel, and equipment for geophysical, hydrographic, geotechnical and diving surveys, assisting them in their statutory role mapping and protecting their respective nations maritime heritage.

A number of our archaeologists are also trained and experienced Marine Mammal Observers.  This can provide significant cost savings on monitoring projects.
