Lino Filho

Assistant Hydrographic Surveyor

  • Master in Geodynamics and Geophysics
  • Bachelor in Oceanography
  • Diploma in Project Management
  • Cert IV in Business
  • Cert I in Marine Operations (AMSA Coxswain 2NC)

Lino began working for Hydrographic and Cadastral Survey early 2020 and was immediately deployed to Myanmar to oversee data processing and quality control of river survey teams. Lino brings a strong field experience background in hydrographic survey to the company; he has been conducting hydrographic surveys since 2009.

Throughout his professional career he practiced a diverse range of hydrographic, environmental and construction survey activities. Areas of operation included rivers, ports and coastlines.

During his Master in Geodynamics and Geophysics, Lino conducted bathymetric survey (single beam) and sedimentological research of the shallow continental shelf of Rio Grande do Norte to evaluate the potential for economic exploitation of mineral resources.

For his Bachelor in Oceanography, Lino worked with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing for urban planning, coastal modelling of oceanographic processes in shallow waters. This involved the study of waves, currents and sediment transport for coastal erosion and beach nourishment projects.
