Yoshi Kaneko case study

​Understanding the rupture process of the Kaikoura earthquake

“Without NeSI’s supercomputer, we cannot run the software with a sufficient resolution for the research problem.”
Subject: 

Squeezing performance from community code SPECFEM3D

"I appreciate the NeSI staff’s assistance in helping me move to NeSI's Cray XC50 supercomputer and achieving this significant boost in productivity."
Subject: 
Fault zone research

Cataloguing NZ’s earthquake activities

“Because we can analyse such large datasets with NeSI, we can generate large catalogues of earthquakes and look at earthquake occurrence over much longer periods of time.”
Subject: 
NIWA Weather Related Hazards research programme

Water conservation applies to weather models too

"NeSI’s support on this project has been extremely valuable and will improve the accuracy of our flood forecasts.”

Andrew Pauling Antarctica

Understanding sea ice changes in the Antarctic

“There’s no other way to run these models. They really need that infrastructure. The models are getting bigger and bigger and the systems need to keep up.”
Subject: 

A statistical modelling approach to monitoring ecosystems

“From my perspective, it was extraordinarily beneficial to have access to NeSI as resource, it really transformed what I thought I would be able to do. The field of statistics at the moment is really on the edge and is advancing all the time."
Subject: 

Preparing New Zealand to adapt to climate change

“The UK Met Office and NIWA have relied on NeSI staff’s deep knowledge of interpolation techniques to assess the strengths and limitations of different earth system data regridding packages.”
Subject: 

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.”

Quake damage

When getting back to basics is better than fancy new tools

"This is a classic example of the huge advances that are being achieved through our excellent collaboration with NeSI."
