ENZO - Early Universe Simulation

Data Type: Scalar volume data (floats) Data Source: SDSC
Visualization Type: Volume rendering Software: VISTA (Volume Renderer)
Data Size: 200 timesteps (4 GB each) Storage Archive: HPSS
Data Volume: 1024 x 1024 x 1024 Computing Cluster Datastar/Bluehorizon

Cosmological evolution from recombination to reionization: reconstructing the first billion years, using a 3D cosmological hydrodynamics code, Enzo, which solves the equations of gas dynamics, N-body dynamics, self-gravtiy, nonequilibrium chemistry and ionization, radiative transfer, heating and cooling, star formation and feedback in an expanding universe.
