MOCASSIN 2.02 manual

Plotting dust temperatures

Depending on the complexity of the dust model employed in a given model and the geometrical complexity of the grid, it may be quite challenging to explore the dust temperature distribution calculated by MOCASSIN and written out to dustGrid.out

Sometimes the only way is to plot out the results or create 3D maps using a visualisation program such as IDL, PDL etc..

The accessories/ subdirectory contains an example ( of how such a grid may visualised using IDL. This was written for a grid containing 2 grain species and 20 grain sizes. The simulation was a multiChemistry dust and gas one, so the results are also split by sector.
