"I learned not only the technical and
legal fundamentals of tides but also the practical aspects of conducting a
tidal study. A lecture session followed by three field sessions and three
computation sessions were all I needed to gain the necessary knowledge to
perform a MHW study. The course material included detailed field procedures,
helpful tips for a successful MHW study and useful computational forms.
If your business requires conducting a MHW
study or if you want to expand your business to include MHW determination,
this seminar is highly recommended."

commercially valuable finfish and shellfish within the aquatic food chain.
This is especially important with consideration of rising sea levels against
the backdrop of encroaching land use development."
