TDI-Brooks has over 25 years of vessel chartering and management experience. The RV Gyre is outfitted with a Kongsberg EM 302 multibeam (MBES) echosounder capable of high resoluton seabed mapping from 10 meters to more than 8,000 meters. The Gyre has executed numerous offshore Surface Geochemical “Seep Hunting” Exploration (SGE) and Heat Flow programs for the world’s leading petroleum producers. The Gyre is also capable of performing deepwater geotechnical coring including 20 meter Jumbo Piston cores (JPC), 40 meter CPT-Stinger acquisition. Other capabilities include environmental assessments, metocean, heat flow and environmental baseline studies (EBS).
- Seabed Geochemical “Seep-Hunting” (SGE)
- Seabed Heat Flow Surveys (HF)
- Seabed Geotechnical Coring and Measurements
- 2DHR Seismic Multi Channel Geophysical Site Surveys
- Pipeline Damage Assessments and
- Offshore Cable Route Surveys
The R/V Gyre is equipped with satellite communications (phone and internet access), differential GPS, two heavy-duty hydraulically-actuated A-Frames with high-speed winches for geotechnical coring work.
Our field services are supplemented by high quality environmental and geotechnical laboratories with a staff of nearly one-hundred individuals including fourteen Ph.D. level oceanographers, geochemists, biologists and geologists.
