All of HEI’s Principals were successful research scientists before they discovered the interesting and potentially valuable aspects of NGH. Each brought a different perspective to NGH research that has given HEI considerable depth across a range of related marine and continental geological issues that bear on NGH.

The results of our research is demonstrated mainly by our publications.
