Monitoring Australia’s Ecosystems

Meet Dr Andrew McGrath, a Senior Research Fellow from Airborne Research Australia (ARA), a Research Centre based at Flinders University.

Dr McGrath uses specialised aircraft, carrying sophisticated sensor packages, to produce high-resolution data of the Earth’s surface for the national Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN).

Data for intelligence

David Blockow, Software Architect for Data to Decisions Cooperative Research Centres (D2D CRC), has been working on two major projects for the predictive and retrospective analysis of data.  

DRD CRC uses Big Data technology to extract useful intelligence and insight from otherwise unmanageable data, providing a safer and more secure Australia.

Want to be an early adopter of Emu?

And no, we’re not talking about the bird. You're invited to be an early adopter of Emu, a cluster in the cloud service. 

If you're a researcher who wants to run compute-intensive software applications in the cloud (without the overhead of managing an instance!) or an eRSA user who would like their own cluster cloud, this is for you.

  • “The supercomputing facilities at eResearch SA permit analysis of a host of interesting problems in evolutionary biology. It is the only computer system in SA that can perform certain complex calculations required to infer large evolutionary trees and associated patterns of evolution.”  
    Associate Professor Michael LeeSouth Australian Museum
  • “Having access to greater computer power helps us put in place a more realistic model in terms of the number of atoms you can have in the system and that improves the predictive power of the calculations.”
    Professor Andrea GersonMinerals and Materials Science & Technology
  • "The eRSA support is very personal and solution-focused and not just a brushing off 'it's-your-fault-check-your-code' kind of support which one sometimes gets from University tech supports. I very much appreciate the help."  
    Sven SchellenbergSchool of Science, RMIT University
  • "eResearch capabilities ... ensure we can continue to use the latest methods available in our field. The hope is that through the use of these technologies, we will be able to achieve some research outcomes that may otherwise not have been possible.”  
    Professor Ina Bornkessel-SchlesewskyCognitive Neuroscience, UniSA
  • On using an eResearch program to complete 3D modelling of architectural records: “We were able to build an interactive, photo image model of the [historical South Australian property Joseph Elliot’s cottage] home – transforming simple sketches and floor plans into an interactive 3D experience... what we have now is a computerised model that allows us to experience the Elliott house beyond just words on paper”.
    Associate Professor Christine Garnaut
  • “It would be impossible to do the type of research that we’re doing without them – it is a major factor in achieving our research outcomes.”
