CAMELS presentation video

This movie shows the time evolution of projected dark matter, gas, and temperature fields from the IllustrisTNG (left) and the SIMBA (right) simulations for different realizations.

This movie shows 2D projections of the spatial distribution of dark matter, gas density, gas temperature, gas metallicity, gas pressure, electron density, gas velocity, neutral hydrogen, and stellar mass from 80 different simulations of the IllustrisTNG LH set. It can be seen the large variety of scenarios the CAMEL simulations cover: from extreme cosmological models to large variations in astrophysics.


Gas distribution of two distinct IllustrisTNG simulations. The one on the top displays the results for a simulation with high supernova feedback strength, while the one on the bottom is from a simulation with low supernova feedback. The color represents gas temperature, while its brightness corresponds to the gas density. We apply an extinction based on gas metallicity. As can be seen, the effect of feedback is very pronounced: it not only affects the gas abundance and temperature on the smallest galaxies but it also changes the gas distribution in the most massive galaxies.
