We provide state-of-the-art mapping and spatial analysis services that add value to your environmental data.
With expertise in remote sensing, GIS, and data management, our specialists develop datasets and analyses that allow you to observe and understand key environmental features of your project.
We gather and analyze geospatial and satellite Earth observation data to extract levels of information to highlight patterns and relationships useful for your project, such as terrain, land cover, water resources, and sensitive habitats.
Standardized fish and fish habitat inventory at stream to watershed levels
Stream, lake and wetland surveys and classification
Stream crossing assessments
Fish sampling (electrofishing, snorkel surveys, spawner surveys, aging structures, genetics)
Total abundance estimates (mark/recapture, 3 pass removal)
Modelling (habitat suitability, stream classification, fish distributions)
Impact assessment and mitigation planning
Habitat compensation plans and designs (channel, instream features, riparian planting)
AEML offers comprehensive fisheries services to meet the growing needs of our clients. Our team can design and implement fisheries programs for a wide range of projects including industrial development, oil and gas, construction, research, and environmental impact assessments.
Fish surveys, including presence and distribution surveys
Fish passage evaluations
Fish population estimation
Freshwater, estuarine, and marine fish habitat mapping
Designing, implementing, monitoring, and auditing projects that aim to address the effects of climate change
Assessing vulnerability to climate change and analyzing projects’ ability to address it
Conducting carbon stock assessments, which inventory the amount of carbon in a forest ecosystem as an initial step in understanding its potential role in climate change mitigation
Improving weather monitoring programs to enhance the accuracy of regional climate data
Modeling a range of climate change scenarios to determine their effects on a region’s unique environmental situation
Environmental Monitoring Data — the volume of data generated during field studies can be cumbersome without a well-planned data management system. Through the development of field data sheets, electronic spreadsheet templates, and specialized database structures, AEML has streamlined the collection, storage, and analysis of monitoring data. Such data management techniques have improved efficiency in data analysis, report generation, and electronic reporting to regulatory agencies. Data management systems can be tailored to field programs in soil and groundwater studies, fisheries, benthos, surface water and sediment quality investigations, and toxicological assessments.
Geographic Information Systems — environmental data interpretation can be enhanced with the use of geographic information systems (GIS). The ability to visualize and compare different types of data (e.g., land use, water quality, fisheries) allows environmental managers to “see” the extent of environmental effects or potential resource use conflicts. A standard tool in the forestry and planning sectors, GIS technology is gaining popularity for the management and analysis of environmental data.
