  • Physical properties of the interstellar medium (ISM) at sub-galactic (∼kpc) scales play an indispensable role in controlling the ability of gas to form stars. As part of the SMAUG (Simulating Multiscale Astrophysics to Understand Galaxies) project, in this paper, we use the TNG50 cosmological simulation of the IllustrisTNG project to explore the physical parameter space comprised of 8 resolved ISM properties in star-forming regions across a wide range of host galaxy mass (M? = 107−11 M ) and… CONTINUE READING
