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.”

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.

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."

Speeding up Basilisk with GPGPUs

NeSI’s supercomputer helps shed light on future climate

“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."

Helping communities anticipate flood events

"The aim of this collaborative consultation project was to enable scientists to obtain results faster, run larger simulations with wider catchment areas, and execute bigger ensemble runs."

The evolution of single and binary stars

"Today on NeSI’s Pan cluster, a highly detailed model can define a star's entire evolution in about five minutes."
Ultra cold gases

The theory of ultra-cold atomic gases

“By using NeSI's resources we were able to simultaneously use almost a thousand cores, which enabled us to complete the work in a fraction of the time it would've taken using only local resources.”

Fast cosmology with machine learning

"Our algorithm is designed to take advantage of parallelism. Running the algorithm on many parallel nodes would have been impossible without the NeSI cluster.”

Searching for Earth-mass planets around Alpha Centauri

“We were able to calculate radial velocities for all our 50,000 observations within about a week – a task that would have otherwise taken several months of computational time.”
