New Partnership Boosts Our Climate Modelling Capacity

The ACE CRC has entered into a new Collaboration Agreement with the National Computing Infrastructure (NCI).

The NCI is Australia’s national research computing facility and is home to the Southern Hemisphere’s fastest supercomputer.  The NCI provides world-class computing services to Australian researchers, industry and government.

Under the new Collaboration Agreement, the ACE CRC will have access to the High Performance Computing (HPC) we need to run model simulations of the cryosphere, oceans and biosphere, and for the analysis of very large data sets – including those collected from satellites.

The new agreement will allow greater collaboration on many important science questions by providing a platform for ACE CRC researchers – and our partners and collaborators – to work together more closely using world-class HPC resources.

Under the agreement, the ACE CRC will lead the management of computing resources for a consortium that includes the Australian Antarctic Division and the Antarctic Gateway Partnership.
