LAB Coastal’s Objectives

L A B Coastal is deeply committed to basic research within its area of expertise. It is often assumed that this can be side-stepped in order to get down to commissioned research. That is to neglect the fundamental scientific principles which must underpin any work in the applied field. L A B Coastal offers a flexible approach to client-orientated survey, research, monitoring and management.
