F5 : CRISMI – The Cosmic-Ray InterStellar-Medium Interplay

> Read the articles connected to the project.

Cosmic rays can play an important dynamical role in the evolution of their host galaxy by modifying the gas cycles and magnetic fields, but we know too little about their transport in different types of interstellar environments to model their impact. The project aims to constrain the different transport modes by using for the first time complementary simulations and observations. We therefore propose to develop state-of-the-art simulations of the coupled evolution of interstellar clouds and cosmic rays and to compare them with radio and gamma-ray observations of comparable regions in the Milky Way.
