10.00am Welcome by Pawsey staff

10.05am Miles Sowden will present about the impact that Pawsey services have on his science project.

Miles Sowden achieved his BSc in chemistry and physics from the University of Natal, South Africa in 1984 and his honours in chemistry the following year. His interest in remote sensing was initiated by the SAFARI 2000 project where the potential of satellite measurements was first tentatively demonstrated for the observation of wildfires in Africa. His PhD study involves the use of data from the newly launched Himawari-8 satellite to determine ground level concentrations of particulate matter in the Pilbara.  Unlike polar orbiting satellites such as MODIS, geostationary satellites such as Himawari supply data at a rapid rate. Himawari in particular supplies 1.8 GB of data every ten minutes equivalent to 180 GB per day.  The sheer volume of data makes it impractical to analyse this data using standalone computers and it becomes vital to use supercomputers such as those at Pawsey to rapidly analyse the large data volumes using multi-core threaded processes.

His talk will highlight his ECU experience of using Pawsey and present some preliminary data processing of the Himawari results.

10.30am Pawsey Supercomputing Staff presenting about Supercomputing, Data and Visualisation services

10.05am Researcher presentation about the impact that Pawsey services have on a science project.

  • Dr Andrew King, Senior Lecturer from the School of Civil and Mechanical Engineering at Curtin University. Computational Fluid Dynamics and Supercomputing
  • High Performance Computing (HPC) has been a significant development for computational Science and Engineering. One technique that has benefited greatly is Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) – a tool for understanding fluid systems by directly solving the Navier-Stokes equations through simulation, in contrast to experimentation. Large HPC systems (such as Pawsey’s “Magnus”) have allowed CFD to be used to investigate previously intractable problems as models can now be developed with finer detail and/or more complexity. This presentation will give an overview of applied fluid problems that have been greatly assisted by Pawsey’s systems in the fields of multiphase flows (filtration and separation), biomedical flows (aerosol drug delivery in the lungs), and renewable energy (Wave Energy Conversion).

10.30am Pawsey Supercomputing Staff presenting about Supercomputing, Data and Visualisation services

Pawsey Fridays are opportunities to get to know users and Pawsey experts.

The afternoon will give you the opportunity to network and get to know both staff and users in a relaxed and informal setting while finding out more about researchers’ experiences with Pawsey systems and their outcomes.

This Pawsey Friday, our special guest is Associate Professor Brett Harris, from the Faculty of Science and Engineering, at Curtin University.

Prof Harris’ work history spans exploration for a wide range of commodities in Australia, Asia and South America. He has initiated and led numerous research projects related to technologies for delineation and development of earth resources. Brett is currently a Program Leader in Australia’s Deep Exploration Technologies Cooperative Research Centre, where he supervises several PhD students and provides lectures in Geophysics.

Focussing on the University’s collaboration with Western Australia’s Department of Water, Brett will present about the use of Supercomputing to manage water resources, specifically he will showcase Perth’s 3D aquifer modelling including the structure and connections of Perth’s underground aquifers, the impact of the drying climate and the use of Perth’s aquifers for water supply.

Understanding the models and connections between the superficial and deep aquifers enable the departments to explore detailed water planning and use scenarios with high levels of resolution and accuracy, to support long-term water management.

Join us to understand how these models enable the departments to explore advanced and detailed water planning and use scenarios with high levels of resolution and accuracy, to support long-term water and environmental management.

This presentation will be followed by a brief Pawsey update from one of our staffs.

A sundowner session will also take place where a selection of drinks and snacks will be available.

Please RSVP for catering purposes.
