NeSI Case Study Brendon Bradley QuakeCORE

Simulating earthquakes for a safer future

We understand the basic physics, but the complexity is such we can’t use intuition to understand these problems. To understand and quantify these phenomena, we need to throw a supercomputer at them.”

Bose Einstein condensate may reveal supersolid’s secrets

There have been several experimentalists that claim to have observed the supersolid state, but none of the experiments have been clear enough to make the claim unequivocal.

Powering global climate simulations

"The fact that NeSI can provide support to things like getting the code to work puts New Zealand in an amazing position worldwide.”

Shedding new light on dark matter

“This was a computationally challenging project and would have been impossible without the serious muscle NeSI provided. The NeSI platform tied together a collaboration between scientists based in New Zealand, Australia, Norway, and the United Kingdom."
Subject: 

Native forests absorbing more carbon dioxide

“High resolution modelling is essential to be able to use this technique effectively in New Zealand. NeSI support opened the door for us to work with models running at the spatial resolution we need.”

Otago physicists’ prediction of gas “droplets” confirmed

Ground-breaking theoretical work by University of Otago physics researchers showing that under certain conditions gases can form into stable droplets – as liquids do – has now been confirmed experimentally by scientists in Germany.

Terrestrial Data Analysis for the Ross Sea region

"Access to NeSI has improved the quality of our analyses and has enabled us to highlight the range of environmental pressures that this part of Antarctica faces."

NeSI’s supercomputer helps shed light on future climate

“NeSI is providing the supercomputing infrastructure on which we are producing climate simulations, both globally and using a regional climate model. You cannot operate an Earth System Model without a supercomputer."
