Welcome to the latest Woods Hole Group Newsletter.  There is much good news to report for the Company, as our clients throughout the US and the world continue to rely on us for environmental services.  Both our domestic and international businesses grew substantially in 2007 and we are proud of this accomplishment.  We are also proud of the kind of work we do as well, work that addresses environmental problems.

This issue of the newsletter reflects our broader focus as we discuss large-scale global warming and smaller-scale environmental issues that affect our beaches.  Our mission at Woods Hole Group is to provide environmental services to many different types of clients in diverse settings.  The environment for us is not about emotion, it is about sound science and engineering, coupled with responsible environmental usage.  We’re not here to stop progress; we’re here to further sustainable projects in environmentally responsible ways.  Woods Hole Group is dedicated to the environment, and for us that means balancing the interests of economic development and natural resource conservation and restoration. 

Because the environment recognizes no borders, we assist at all levels – from international to regional to local.  That assistance is reflected in the first article in this issue; David Aubrey’s article “Environmental Challenges Around the Globe”.  It is the second part of our concise recap of major environmental threats worldwide and what Woods Hole Group is doing to help address those threats.  The second article is by Brian Caufield and addresses water quality issues that affect our beaches.  The final article, Deep Blue, discusses the estimation of water depth in deep water.  David Szabo and Dr. Leonid Ivanov’s article is a technical discussion of an issue that is of great importance to the design of seafloor structures and tendons for tension leg platforms. 

Please enjoy this issue and I look forward to speaking to you again.

Salut!

Dennis Aubrey, President
