​Understanding the rupture process of the Kaikoura earthquake

“Without NeSI’s supercomputer, we cannot run the software with a sufficient resolution for the research problem.”
Subject: 

Squeezing performance from community code SPECFEM3D

"I appreciate the NeSI staff’s assistance in helping me move to NeSI's Cray XC50 supercomputer and achieving this significant boost in productivity."
Subject: 
Fault zone research

Cataloguing NZ’s earthquake activities

“Because we can analyse such large datasets with NeSI, we can generate large catalogues of earthquakes and look at earthquake occurrence over much longer periods of time.”
Subject: 

Priorities for conservation of NZ’s ecosystems and species

“Ben helped us start to think outside of the limitations of running this analysis on our local machine to considering the possibilities of running hundreds and thousands of iterations."
Subject: 

Building genomics connections across the Tasman

“The training workshops provided an excellent introduction to the GVL environment and there is definitely potential for considering it as part of our compute offerings for Genomics Aotearoa.”
Pieris brassicae

Predictive models to combat invasive species

“To run a large number of simulations and scenarios, we needed more computational power.”

Volcano locations Middle America Trench

Improving earthquake forecasting methods

"If we want to solve real world problems, we need sophisticated models to capture what’s happening in the real world, which is not simple."

NIWA Weather Related Hazards research programme

Water conservation applies to weather models too

"NeSI’s support on this project has been extremely valuable and will improve the accuracy of our flood forecasts.”
Subject: 
Wireless Body Area Networks

Enhancing Wireless Body Area Networks design and functionality

"High performance computing is essential for projects like mine when you need reliable and fast platforms to run these jobs.”
