Courty, S; Gibson, B K; Teyssier, R (2009). The circum-galactic gas around cosmologically simulated disks. In: Hunting for the Dark: the Hidden Side of Galaxy Formation, Qawra, Malta, 19 October 2009 - 23 October 2009, 131-134.
We analyze the physical properties and infall rates of the circum-galactic gas around disks obtained in multi-resolved, cosmological, AMR simulations. At intermediate and low red-shifts, disks are embedded in an extended, hot, tenuous corona that contributes largely in fueling the disk with non-enriched gas whereas the accretion of enriched gas from tidal streams occurs throughout episodic events. We derive an infall rate close to the disk of the same value as the one of the star formation rate in the disk and its temporal evolution as a function of galacto-centric radius nicely shows that the growth of galactic disks proceeds according to an inside-out formation scenario.
