NSF EPSCoR: Collaborative Research: A Systematic and Comprehensive Study of Black Hole-Driven Turbulence in Massive Galactic Systems

Grants and Contracts Details


The outbursts of supermassive black holes are thought to prevent the cooling catastrophe at the centers of groups and clusters of galaxies. Turbulence provides a viable way for the energy dissipated into heating up the intracluster medium. We propose to perform a systematic study of a carefully selected sample of groups and clusters with archival ALMA, MUSE, and MaNGA observations. We will the velocity structure function of the filaments over a wide range of the scales to constrain the level and origin of turbulence of their cold gas. We will complement our study with deep Chandra observations and specifically tailored numerical simulations.
