Our Focus

We are professional earth scientists specializing in geomorphology and process sedimentology. We focus on river and shoreline restoration, erosion hazard delineation and mitigation, and projects that require an in-depth understanding of erosion, sedimentation and sediment transport.

Our team of industry leaders provides observation-rich answers based on a balanced application of quality science and years of experience to achieve practical, implementable and acceptable solutions for all stakeholders. A successful project is one that meets or exceeds our client’s objectives.

  • Geomorphology. Earth Science. Observation.

  • Watersheds. Rivers. Coasts.

  • Sedimentary Processes. Hydraulics. Morphology.

  • Measurement. Modeling. Prediction.

  • Characterization. Protection. Restoration.

Emergency Environmental Restoration and Impact Mitigation

Sediment spills may occur for a number of reasons — poor planning, unexpected weather conditions, or operator error— but the best way to limit negative environmental outcomes is to quickly confine and mitigate the impacts.

GEO Morphix staff was the first to implement Silt-Smart in Southern Ontario. Our team has substantial experience addressing emergencies related to accidental large-scale sediment releases. We move quickly from emergency site stabilization to managing remedial activities and addressing residual impacts:

  • We assess impacts and develop plans to immediately stabilize sites
  • We limit the extent of impacts
  • We develop practical plans to reverse negative outcomes
  • We can develop plans to limit the potential for future events

GEO Morphix has developed innovative yet practical solutions for remediation

Our low-impact techniques to remove fine sediments from spawning habitat are both practical and low cost. We have experience managing small-scale pumping systems that can be brought to sites and implemented without the need for heavy equipment, particularly for sensitive sites.

Many of our projects have involved restoration of habitat of endangered species and recognize the sensitivity of these systems.
