The life cycle of the Central Molecular Zone - II. Distribution of atomic and molecular gas tracers

Armillotta, Lucia; Krumholz, Mark; Di Teodoro, Enrico Maria


We use the hydrodynamical simulation of our inner Galaxy presented in Armillotta et al. to study the gas distribution and kinematics within the Central Molecular Zone (CMZ). We use a resolution high enough to capture the gas emitting in dense molecular tracers such as NH3 and HCN, and simulate a time window of 50 Myr, long enough to capture phases during which the CMZ experiences both quiescent and intense star formation. We then post-process the simulated CMZ to calculate its spatially...[Show more]
