Large Scale Shocks are responsible for the heating of the ICM and can be important sources of Cosmic Rays (CR) in the Universe. However the occu rrence and properties of these shocks are still poorly constrained from both a theore tical and an observational side. In this work we analyze the properties of Large Scale Shocks i n a(103Mpc/h) cosmological volume simulated with the public 1.0.1 release of th e ENZO code. Different methods to identify and characterize shocks in post processing are d… CONTINUE READING
