Coastal Engineering

For over 30 years, Oceanit’s group of highly qualified coastal engineers, planners, scientists, and managers have been dedicated to solving the unique and diverse challenges facing coastal communities in Hawaii and around the Pacific. Our experienced professionals have a reputation for excellence in deep science and disruptive technology and we apply a human-centered approach to engineer innovative solutions to complex challenges. We are dedicated to resilient and sustainable shoreline communities and are pioneers in applying inventive technologies to solve coastal issues when traditional methods don’t fit.

Oceanit staff have expertise in developing numerical and physical models to replicate dynamic coastal processes, including the impacts of sea-level rise on the shoreline. In addition, we are skilled at developing and deploying advanced instruments to collect data from the marine environment. Project experience includes beach restoration, shoreline erosion protection, coastal process characterization studies, shoreline construction permitting, and repair of seawall and other historic shoreline protection structures.
