Providing global context to the marine methane paradox

“Parsing through this amount of information requires machines with plenty of memory and computing power.”
Subject: 
Yoshi Kaneko case study

​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.”

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.”

Understanding sea ice changes in the Antarctic

“There’s no other way to run these models. They really need that infrastructure. The models are getting bigger and bigger and the systems need to keep up.”
Subject: 

A statistical modelling approach to monitoring ecosystems

“From my perspective, it was extraordinarily beneficial to have access to NeSI as resource, it really transformed what I thought I would be able to do. The field of statistics at the moment is really on the edge and is advancing all the time."

Preparing New Zealand to adapt to climate change

“The UK Met Office and NIWA have relied on NeSI staff’s deep knowledge of interpolation techniques to assess the strengths and limitations of different earth system data regridding packages.”
