Bursty star formation feedback and cooling outflows

Abstract:

We study how outflows of gas launched from a central galaxy undergoing repeated starbursts propagate through the circumgalactic medium (CGM), using the simulation code RAMSES. We assume that the outflow from the disk can be modelled as a rapidly moving bubble of hot gas at ~ 1 kpc above disk, then ask what happens as it moves out further into the halo around the galaxy on ~ 100 kpc scales. To do this we run 60 two-dimensional simulations scanning over parameters of the outflow. Each of the...
