Coastal Erosion and MetOcean Data for Port Construction

The existing port of Limon was constructed over 30-years ago and with the increase of import/export activities of Costa Rica and Latin America in general, a new, up to date container port must be constructed to handle the steady stream of vessel traffic in and out of the country. In parallel to all the pre and present construction involved, dredging, seawall manufacturing and permanent pier support, all environmental conditions must be monitored, both terrestrial and marine related. Coastal erosion and offshore MetOcean parameters are required to be measured during the construction phase of the project and are to begin in the Spring of 2016 for a duration of 3-years. Costa Rica is very 'environmentally conscious'. All parties involves in this project must adhere to strict environmental standards.
