  • Development and maintenance of scientific applications applied to the processing and visualization of meteorological data (interpolation, compression and distributed processing)
  • Documentation of user guides for software developed in the Computer Division
  • Computer support to the daily operations of the Computer Division; maintenance of workstations and servers, scientific, office and multimedia applications
