Geomorphology services can be essential components of development projects. An understanding of the land, its history, composition and underlying structure can be critical to understanding how a project can proceed.
Hemmera has the expertise and the experience to provide comprehensive geomorphology analysis, modelling and mapping services to inform planning, improve forecasting, and minimize risk. In a multi-step planning process we work with our clients’ project teams to analyze and measure the project’s objectives, scope, and risks from a geomorphological perspective. We look at site stability, geology, land contours, potential water run-out and debris flow patterns and more, to determine the elements that may interact and affect the project site.
