Visualising hydro simulations of galaxy clusters

NOTE: This application is no longer available.
It is superseded by the [http://www.g-vo.org/JobRunner#Smac| JobRunner/Smac] application.

As a first approach towards more comprehensive virtual telescope services, GAVO makes available two services supplied by Klaus Dolag and coworkers for creating representations of the results of hydrodynamical simulations of galaxy clusters. The goal of this exercise is partly to investigate how a more realistic virtual telescope could be exposed, but also already to enable researchers to extract information from simulations that can be directly compared to the post-processed rewsults of X-Ray observations. To that end a science project has started in which the results of the physical visualisation are analysed in the same way as post-processed observations were in Schuecker et al (2004).
