As a specialist in our field, AMOG regularly presents technical papers on key projects we have worked on, or the outcomes of research we have undertaken, or are undertaking. AMOG Principals, associates and employees have authored or co-authored many published books and papers.  

We are in the process of constructing a comprehensive list of these documents. In the meantime, a small summary has been prepared below and, if you have any questions about specific publications, please contact us.
