Assisting the maritime industry in regulatory compliance

Bryant's Maritime Consulting


This site is intended to familiarize the reader with issues of significance to legislators and regulators and explain how they might impact the maritime community.  Most of the time, new developments are presnted in a straight-forward manner.  Sometimes, though, I will include my own perspective on an issue.  My perspective is just that – my own.  I welcome comment on the various topics presented – whether in support or disagreement.

    In the June 2017 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Canary in the coal mine". The article discusses how the historically record low level of Arctic sea ice serves as a sentinel, a warning that sea levels will rise as the Greenland ice cap melts and the water flows into the sea. The record high air temperatures in the Arctic that are causing the loss of sea ice are also leading to a loss of the thickness of the ice cap. Change is coming. Watch your tide gauge.
