Akvaplan-niva offers advice and research in freshwater and marine environments.  We perform environmental risk assessments and analyses of activities within offshore petroleum exploration and extraction, shipping, mining and aquaculture. We also offer environmental monitoring adapted to varying needs within development, operations, decommissioning and restoration.

Oceanographic modelling of water movement and the spread of a variety of discharges to the marine environment is a key in any risk or impact assessment. Based on modelling of currents and dispersal, sewage outfall locations and infrastructure design and location is planned.
