New Zealand 2100: The future through high-resolution wave modelling

"I’m lucky to have access to a cluster like NeSI’s. Without it, I’d be running this model for years, rather than about a month.”
NeSI Case Study Alexis Marshal University of Waikato

Parallel processing for ocean life

"We contacted NeSI because we were going from trying to assemble 100,000 individual 150 nucleotide base sequences, to trying to assemble 1.4 billion. We were having computational issues with memory, but also time."
NeSI Case Study Jon Tunnicliffe University of Auckland

NeSI support helps keep NZ rivers healthy

"It’s been helpful to have routines optimised through NeSI assistance... it’s easier for students and researchers to put their data into the model, experiment with the governing parameters, and then observe what comes out of it."
LFRic UK Met Office Case Study

The development of next generation weather and climate models is heating up

The LFRic development effort involves international partners from New Zealand, Australia, the United States, Korea, and India.
NeSI Case Study Erik Behrens Jonny Williams NIWA

Getting closer to more accurate climate predictions for New Zealand

"Researchers will be using this model for ground-breaking research."
NeSI NIWA case study

How NeSI and NIWA help the UK Met Office develop next generation weather analysis tools

Interpolation is ubiquitous in climate and weather models. NeSI team members Alexander Pletzer and Wolfgang Hayek have developed a new interpolation method that will improve the UK Met Office's ability to forecast weather events.

Investigating climate sensitivity

“The numerical simulations and predictions of the Earth’s climate, which are an essential component of my research, are not possible without NeSI’s high computing facility.”
Scott Lockwood NeSI Case Study University of Otago

Providing global context to the marine methane paradox

“Parsing through this amount of information requires machines with plenty of memory and computing power.”

Model reveals islands at risk of coastal flooding

"Sea level rise will have a compounding effect for coastal flooding on reef coastlines."
NeSI Case Study David Coppin University of Auckland

Tracking coastal precipitation systems in the tropics

"The new code implemented is much faster and runs more efficient on NeSI platforms, which allows me to concentrate more on my research and less on computer science aspects."
