"Sea level rise will have a compounding effect for coastal flooding on reef coastlines."
Wave-driven flooding is expected to make many of the world's coral-fringed coastlines uninhabitable and Kiwi scientists have found a way to reveal which are most at risk. One of those researchers is Dr. Eddie Beetham, a Research Fellow at the University of Auckland. His projects, which involve a combination of field measurements and complex modelling techniques, rely on access to NeSI.
"Without NeSI, these computationally intensive studies would simply not be viable."
How and when species came to be is the fundamental question in macroevolution. Attempts to answer it use a variety of data sources including genome sequences, morphology, and fossil discoveries. At the University of Auckland’ s Centre for Computational Evolution, a research team is using NeSI computing resources to try and address this challenge.
We hosted more than 150 people in Auckland for our 10th anniversary event
Thank you to our conference co-host REANNZ and everyone who attended, participated, and supported eResearch NZ 2019! Final presentations are being uploaded to Figshare and we'll update the event website when the collection is available. Mark your calendars for eResearch 2020 in Dunedin! If you missed joining us in Auckland last week, check out our brief recap.
We asked research leaders to identify key research drivers, priorities & capbilities.
Over the last few months, NeSI has been interviewing 26 research leaders across New Zealand, seeking to identify what they view as the key opportunities and challenges around advanced computing for NZ's research communities over the next five to seven years. The first in a selection of thought pieces from that consultation process is now available to read.
Watch this space for announcements around location, dates, and submissions
Following on last year's successful Science Coding event in Rotorua, and hot on the heels of eResearch NZ 2019 in Auckland last week, we're just days away from announcing the details for our 2019 Science Coding Conference. Join research software engineers, developers, IT managers, and coding enthusiasts to discuss best practices, share ideas and innovations, and build a stronger science coding community in New Zealand.
Sharing best practices in information and data quality: On Friday 01 March, our partners in Australia are hosting a special international Tech Talk session with US speakers from the Earth Science community, and from NCI in Australia. Click here for more information.
See you at the Women in Data Science Conference! NeSI Data Analyst Nancy Lin will be there - look for the NeSI t-shirt! If you can't make it in person, don't worry, sessions are being streamed. More information here.
Registered yet for AI-DAY? As of early February, nearly 200 people had registered for the #AIDAY19 conference, workshops and #Hackfest. We're looking forward them! Click here for more information.
