Site characterization is fundamental to managing ground risks and optimizing opportunities. It is subordinate to nearshore and offshore projects, defined here as projects for seabed-supported facilities in water depths between approximately 20 m and 200 m. This paper presents perceptions of present practice, prevailing pitfalls and possibilities for future development in the industry. Strategy and management, integrated geosciences, and project-specific data acquisition are discussed.
