Improving tools to model seismic wave behaviour and predict earthquake impacts

"Simulations used to take 24 hours, now I get results back in 2 hours. It has changed the way I work."

Powering novel approaches to modelling earthquake behaviours

"Not only does the simulation work complete quickly now, but I’ve learnt a lot about the HPCs and sophisticated computational tools which will be necessary for future developments."

Scaling up the analysis of simulations on nanowire stability

"This has helped me to scale up my research capabilities not only with this work, but also with future endeavours too."

Picture perfect HPC image analysis

Jingli Lu needed High Performance Computing (HPC) performance for hyperspectral image analysis. She had some HPC knowledge but when problems occurred, NeSI team members jumped in to help integrate new tools and troubleshoot her experience.

Understanding New Zealand’s ever-changing climate in an uncertain future

“We don’t know what is going to happen to New Zealand on a local scale with climate change unless we use high-resolution models. It shows you changes on a scale that actually affects you.”

Computing Ocean Flow

"Nemoflux allows new users, unfamiliar with the specific model grid, to dive into model data and tackle their real world science questions."

Using deep learning models to improve climate change projections

"The advantage of learning how to create workflows on the NeSI HPC platform, is that we could create reproducible science which enables better collaboration amongst scientists."

Using automation to enable faster collection and analysis of MRI data

"The automated data transfer with scheduling and destination setting functions allowed us to send large data out to multiple depositories, allowing streamlined image analysis."
