We are a company specialized in applying numerical simulations for aquatic environment studies.
We have always dreamed of helping companies to grow in their businesses without harming the environment. To achieve this Ivan Dias Soares, Oceanographer and Gisele Juglair, Business Administrator, decided in early 2016 to unite our dreams and professional experiences to found Atlantech, which aims to meet the demand of companies that are increasingly aware about offering their services and products in a way that does not harm the population or the environment.
Project developed for “The Ocean Cleanup” foundation. It aims to simulate currents and waves in the northeastern Pacific Ocean, known as the Great Pacific Gargage Patch (GPGP), where tons of plastic wastes have been building up for decades. The biggest challenge of the project is to simulate the dynamics of the surface layer of the oceans, which is only a few centimeters thick.
In this project, the simulation of the continental shelf dynamics is carried out with the open source numerical model ROMS (Regional Ocean Modeling System). The studied area is the coastal ocean off the Brazilian coast between Rio de Janeiro and Santa Catarina, with higher resolution and detailing of the coast of Paraná, focusing on the Bay of Paranaguá.
The water quality of the Guanabara Bay is systemically studied in a numerical simulation of hydrodynamics and pollutant dispersion. The biggest challenge is the identification of sources of clandestine pollutants, as well as their locations, discharge intensities and compositions.
We will use the best technical resources available to deliver reliable, high quality studies, always with close attention and utmost regard to your urgency. We work with open source software and cloud-costumised computing capabilities to meet the needs of each client.
