Starburst99/Mappings Model Grid

The new grids of stellar population synthesis and photoionization models described in Levesque, Kewley, & Larson (2010) are available here for download. The grids were run using the Starburst99 stellar population synthesis code and the Mappings III photoionization code.

This website will eventually include a detailed interface allowing users to download a tailored subset of the model grids based on the specific parameters they wish to include. For the time being, the grids are available to download in their entirety as two large (~655 MB) compressed .tar files. The models also include a README that explains the directory structure used to organize the models – please read this first!

Please also note that we expected to update these grids with new results that accommodate stellar evolutionary tracks with rotation – stay tuned!

“HIGH” model grid* (624 MB)
(these models adopt the “high” mass loss rate evolutionary tracks of the Geneva group, described in Meynet et al. 1994)
*these are currently the models recommended by Levesque, Kewley, & Larson (2010) and the Geneva group

“STD” model grid (625 MB)
(these models adopt the “standard” mass loss rate evolutionary tracks of the Geneva group, described in Schaller et al. 1992, Schaerer et al. 1993a, 1993b, and Charbonnel et al. 1993.)
