NeSI held its last webinar of the 'Quick Tips' webinar series this week. Here, NIWA researcher Dr. Cyprien Bosserelle talked about the development of his inundation model and his journey predicting and visualising inundation (flood) patterns using NeSI’s HPC Platform. These visualisations often play an important role in hazard assessments and forecasting, but can be challenging to generate with traditional software.
