NeSI provides a range of services, people, expertise, and information to help computational research projects become reality


COVID-19 Essential Service

NeSI remains open for normal business during the level 4 shutdown. Our team is working remotely and remain available during this time.

NeSI is a supplier of essential services to research teams working on the COVID-19 response across NZ. If you're involved in this work, please get in touch and we will do our best to assist in any way possible.

Visualising ripple effects in riverbed sediment transport

“NeSI staff provided critical help at a critical time."

NeSI Case Study Celine Cattoen Gilbert NIWA river forecast

New Zealand’s first national river flow forecasting system for flooding resilience

"Without NeSI’s input, we would have been much more limited. We wouldn’t have been able to develop a national-scale system running in real-time."

NeSI Case Study Yoshihiro Kaneko GNS Science Hikurangi

How multithreading and vectorisation can speed up seismic simulations by 40%

GNS Science researchers are producing detailed images of the 3D structure and geometry of the Hikurangi mega-thrust region using a technique called seismic tomography.

NeSI Case Study Cyprien Bosserelle NIWA

A fast model for predicting floods and storm damage

"Rendering this grid in the traditional way is not trivial – it would take longer to render the result than run the model each time I wanted to find errors. I approached NeSI and we started talking about visualisation."
Subject: 
NeSI case study Giacomo Giorli NIWA

Machine learning for marine mammals

“By understanding the abundance and distribution of different marine mammals in New Zealand, we can inform conservation policy, management of marine resources, licensing for offshore activity and create better environmental impact assessments.”

Joao Albuquerque NeSI Case Study University of Auckland

New Zealand 2100: The future through high-resolution wave modelling

"I’m lucky to have access to a cluster like NeSI’s. Without it, I’d be running this model for years, rather than about a month.”

NeSI Case Study Jon Tunnicliffe University of Auckland

NeSI support helps keep NZ rivers healthy

"It’s been helpful to have routines optimised through NeSI assistance... it’s easier for students and researchers to put their data into the model, experiment with the governing parameters, and then observe what comes out of it."

NeSI Case Study Alexis Marshal University of Waikato

Parallel processing for ocean life

"We contacted NeSI because we were going from trying to assemble 100,000 individual 150 nucleotide base sequences, to trying to assemble 1.4 billion. We were having computational issues with memory, but also time."

LFRic UK Met Office Case Study

The development of next generation weather and climate models is heating up

The LFRic development effort involves international partners from New Zealand, Australia, the United States, Korea, and India.

NeSI Case Study Erik Behrens Jonny Williams NIWA

Getting closer to more accurate climate predictions for New Zealand

"Researchers will be using this model for ground-breaking research."
