Impact study – Tidal turbine at Bréhat


In 2009, MAREE in partnership with ALTRAN-Ouest, realized  ambient noise acoustic measurements to establish an initial state of the site of a future tidal turbine park close to Brehat island. In 2011, MAREE and ALTRAN-Ouest made a similar measurements… Continue reading

Impact study – Monitoring of blasting operations, Yemen

In 2006 and 2007, MAREE has conducted acoustic measurements to minimize blasting effects during a gas terminal construction. The aim of the project was to provide the local propagation decreasing law versus range featuring the use of a buried blast,… Continue reading

Impact study – Measurement and analysis of airgun signals in Guyana

In order to improve our knowledge of the environmental impacts of seismic operations on the continental shelf of Guyana, MAREE has conducted acoustic measurements in 2005. The data processing allowed to provide quantitative informations, useful to give recommendations to protect… Continue reading

INSEA an inovative celerimeter

R&D never stops for MAREE, which developed a totally new device: INSEA (INvestigation of SEdiment by Acoustic).


INSEA is an innovative celerimeter that can be used in laboratory or deployed in situ. INSEA can be used by a single… Continue reading


MODENA (Modélisation de l’Observation à Distance de l’ENvironnement Maritime) was a project labelized by the Pole Mer  Bretagne and MAREE was a Partner in that project. Between 2007 and 2010, MAREE has conducted experimental studies  concerning interactions between acoustic waves… Continue reading
