Vallejo Marine Terminal CEQA Analysis and Marine Resources Assessment
AMS assisted Dudek and other team members in assessing potential environmental effects of a marine terminal in accordance with CEQA. AMS prepared the marine biological resource and impact assessment for the CEQA analysis, and conducted a benthic infauna and intertidal community and habitat assessment of the site.

Mitigation Monitoring for Fiberoptic Cable Installations at Grover Beach
In support of installation of four submarine cables, AMS scientists conducted site assessments of potential submerged aquatic vegetation beds in the HDD bore offshore terminus locations using SCUBA, and also performed compliance monitoring in onshore and offshore locations during drilling operations on behalf of the California State Lands Commission.
Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project
AMS investigated the impact of brine discharge from a proposed desalination plant into the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary by conducting oceanographic modeling of the bay. AMS also assessed marine biological impacts based on the outcome of the physical processes modeling of salinity.
