Description

We use cosmological simulations on the STFC distributed computing facility DiRAC to predict the expected properties of the Ly-A forest in the environment of star-forming galaxies in the context of a LCDM cosmology,
with a view to establishing the gaseous flow pattern around the galaxies and the spatial extent to which winds impact on the CGM through comparison
with the observations.0.5M core-hours were awarded.
