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.”

Turning data points into research insights

“By splitting the computational workload over hundreds of cores, we were able to significantly reduce the amount of time needed to produce these data-rich high-quality models.”

UC scientists make biomolecular breakthrough

The following article was written by the University of Canterbury Communications Department and published on the University of Canterbury website on 20 September 2016. NeSI supercomputing resources were used to support this research breakthrough.

Golden mystery solved

A long-standing discrepancy between experiments and theory concerning the electronic properties of gold has now been resolved.

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.

Improving heart disease prediction and prognosis

“NeSI enabled us to run biologically realistic, numerical experiments, which are impossible to conduct in vivo.”

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 explores innovative uses of cloud services for advanced computing

The needs of the New Zealand research community for advanced computing platforms is growing along with the range of possibilities to meet those needs.
