Infrastructure often intersects challenging landscapes that may negatively impact their integrity. River systems, unstable slopes, and excessive precipitation are a few examples of environmental hazards to your infrastructure. Collectively called geohazards, these risks should be effectively managed as part of a risk based integrity management program.
The natural processes that result in geohazards are understood through Geomorphology, the science of landscape evolution and function. Geomorphology provides a framework for understanding why a specific process is occurring in a given location. Most natural processes affecting the earth’s surface are studied and understood through geomorphology. Our geohazards team is composed of geomorphology professionals with expertise in the difficult landscapes energy companies operate in.
