Following the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey upon the Gulf Coast, TDI-Brooks as a subcontractor to TerraSond under their US Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) contract, assists TerraSond’s own survey response efforts by surveying Galveston’s ship channel to enable the Port to open quickly for incoming ships. The U.S. Coast Guard originally closed multiple ports along the Texas Gulf Coast, including those at Houston, Galveston, Texas City, Freeport and Corpus Christi. Galveston’s ship channel is the busiest in the country. With TerraSond managing the project, TDI-Brooks have supplied their 162 ft. vessel, the R/V Brooks McCall which houses a suite of geophysical equipment to provide ocean-bottom hydrographic surveys . 

R/V Brooks McCall

The Brooks McCall’s primary market niche in the Northern Gulf of Mexico is geotechnical coring including 20-m JPC and 40-m CPT-Stinger acquisition. TDI-Brooks has added to our geotechnical tool kit the ability to take Shelby tube samples to 40-m with our CPT-Sampler.  The Brooks McCall’s is also available for pipeline hazard, debris mapping, P-Cable, MBES, metocean, sand search, and environmental studies.
