Presentation Friday, March 7 10:30am – “Remote Technologies for Public Safety Diving Missions”
SeaVision President, Jeff Snyder is presenting this Friday at the 2014 Boston Sea Rovers Clinic!
One of the oldest and most distinguished underwater/diving clubs in America, the Boston Sea Rovers is a 501C3 not for profit volunteer organization dedicated to increasing awareness and appreciation of the marine environment. In 1954, club members coordinated the first public underwater-film exhibition – a tradition that has evolved into the annual weekend-long Boston Sea Rovers Clinic, that kicks off this Friday, March 7, 2014.
SeaVision’s Founder, President, and Chief Geophysical Surveyor, Jeff Snyder will be delivering a presentation called “Remote Technologies for Public Safety Diving Missions” Friday at 10:30am to help kick off the Clinic’s opening day. Mr. Snyder’s presentation will focus on some of the many practical applications of available remote sensing technologies to support safe and successful diving operations.
Stick around after the presentation for a weekend, packed with workshops, seminars, and activities – not to mention the Boston Sea Rovers’ world renowned film festival, which showcases the recent works of contemporary underwater filmmakers.
Visit the official Boston Sea Rovers website for more information. We hope to see you there.
Gravity Environmental LLC
We’re proud to announce our partnership with Gravity Environmental LLC.
Based in Leavenworth, WA, the fine folks at Gravity specialize in sampling support services for a wide range of marine projects. We believe this collaboration will further increase our clients’ return on investment, by better utilizing both companies’ staff, experience, strengths, and expertise while further expanding our range of available services.
During prior collaborations, the Gravity team has showcased their many talents, in support of various marine sampling projects. One reasons we’re looking forward to working more closely with Gravity is that (like our own team) the folks at Gravity offer creative, “out of the box” approaches to project logistics – like how to access to challenging underwater environments and overcoming the complications that can arise during particularly challenging projects. With their arsenal of proprietary sampling equipment and a fleet of versatile research vessels, we anticipate many additional opportunities for future success.

Newest Member of SeaVision’s Team
We’re excited to announce our hiring of Associate Geophysical Surveyor, Ms. Erika Young. Please join us in welcoming her to SeaVision’s growing team of exceptionally dedicated and talented employees!
Ms. Young earned her B.S. in Coastal Geology from the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE), and has since acquired substantial experience in underwater navigation and ROV operations – both as a Navigator aboard the RVs NAUTILUS and OKEANOS EXPLORER.
Since receiving her degree, Ms. Young has earned substantial experience in underwater navigation, and ROV operations as Navigator aboard the E/Vs Nautilus and NOASS Okeanos Explorer. As a private contractor, Young proved herself to be an invaluable member of the team, single-handedly processing and interpreting over 15,000 acres of sonar data acquired during a massive post-Superstorm Sandy waterway debris removal project.
Although Ms. Young’s experience has afforded her opportunities to explore the coastal and offshore waters of the world, from New Zealand to the Black and East Aegean Seas, she always returns to the jagged glacial coastlines of her New England home.
