Mitiga Solutions is a spin-off of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, a world renowned institution with over two decades of experience in developing and implementing models in the fields of geophysics, volcanology and atmospheric science. Our main focus is to develop and commercialize solutions capable to evaluate and manage volcanic hazards, helping clients across multiple industries to improve their risk management.
Atmospheric dispersion of hazardous substances (e.g. volcanic ash) influences many economic markets and poses a variety of problems to the aviation industry. The presence of airborne volcanic ash at low and jet-cruise atmospheric levels compromises the safety of aircraft operations and forces re-routing of aircraft to prevent encounters with volcanic ash clouds. Past volcanic events have shown the difficulty to access to atmospheric hazard dispersal information useful for Air Traffic Management (ATM).
