MHS has collected environmental data for numerous coastal developments including ocean outfalls, marina developments, prawn farms, finfish hatchery's, and resort developments. Bathymetry, side scan sonar, seismic reflection profiling, current metering, water quality, tidal studies, and sediment sampling data is collected, analysed and reported upon to form part of the environmental impact assessment.

MHS has collected environmental data for numerous mining and industrial projects. Bathymetry, side scan sonar, seismic profiling, current metering, water quality, and sediment sampling data is collected, analysed and reported upon to form part of the environmental impact assessment.

MHS has collected environmental data for numerous dredging and reclamation works. Bathymetry, dredge plume monitoring, current metering, tidal studies and oceanographic sampling data is collected, analysed and reported upon to form part of the environmental impact assessment.
