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.
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.
“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."
