Galaxy spectral energy distribution (SED) modelling is a po werful tool, but constraining how well it is able to infer the true values for galaxy properties ( .g. the star formation rate, SFR) is difficult because independent determinations are often n ot available. However, galaxy simulations can provide a means of testing SED modelling techni ques. Here, we present a numerical experiment in which we apply the SED modelling code MAGPHYS to ultraviolet (UV)– millimetre (mm) synthetic photometry… Expand
