“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.”
At Victoria University of Wellington, researchers are using NeSI supercomputing resources to learn more about fault zones and what their physical properties can tell us about how and when earthquakes happen.
“To run a large number of simulations and scenarios, we needed more computational power.”
Working with Associate Professor Susan Worner, Audrey Lustig’s doctoral project at Lincoln University used NeSI resources to build a computational model that improved researchers’ ability to track and correlate the interactions between an invasive species and their ecosystem.
We're gathering New Zealand's research software engineers, developers, IT managers, and coding enthusiasts for two days of talks and networking in Rotorua! Check out our list of speakers and register today!
New application schedule coming for new Merit and Postgraduate allocations
Join us on 25 July for a discussion around NeSI's move to quarterly application calls for Merit and Postgraduate allocations. We'll be sharing an overview of the process updates and the upcoming schedule changes.
Having hosted the 2017 event, IEEE eScience 2018 will be taking place in Amsterdam 29 October - 1 November.
