Patrick McLaren Ph.D., P.Geo.,  President

Dr. Patrick McLaren is a geologist and a leader in the field of sediment transport and sedimentation dynamics. From flow and transport in Lac Saint Pierre to the dynamics of sediment in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, his method, Sediment Trend Analysis (STA), has solved engineering issues, improved aquatic environments and shown how to reduce costs.

STA has been applied to a large number of international projects encompassing port design, ocean dumping, coastal erosion, dredging, contaminated sediment remediation and environmental impact assessment. 

Dr. McLaren has three decades of experience in coastal and marine research.  In addition to consulting with SedTrend, he has worked closely with the Geological Survey of Canada and the University of Cambridge. He is the author of more than 30 scientific papers, and is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists.
