Tuakiri single sign-on helps eTV service education sector

“You need local, on the ground expertise to draw on. Once Tuakiri came along and became its own national service, things very quickly started to work.”

Modelling ash and gas dispersion for the 2012 eruption of Te Maari at Mount Tongariro

Scientists from NIWA, Massey University and GNS Science work together to test ash and gas dispersion models.
Subject: 

Simulating quantum mechanics

Emerging technological advances in laboratory methods have made it possible for scientists to directly observe the fragile quantum state.
Subject: 

Enhancing rock permeability to improve geothermal energy production

The key to sustainable and productive heat extraction lies in the enhancement of those native percolation pathways. This allows sufficient flow rates without allowing cold water to pass to the receiver wells.
Subject: 

Studying the shape and the size of the universe

“The results could provide a very important piece of information about the connection between quantum physics and General Relativity and how the universe emerged from the quantum foam of spacetime.”
Subject: 

Modelling dispersal and ecological competition

Researching millions of years of ecological colonisation, competition and re-colonisation in minutes
