Metal Enrichment Processes in the Intra-Cluster Medium: Simulations versus Observations

S. Schindler


This paper reviews metal enrichment processes - processes that transport
gas from the galaxies to their environment and enrich the environment in
this way with metals. The efficiency of the processes is important for
the evolution of both the galaxies and their environment. Various
processes can contribute to the gas transfer: ram-pressure stripping,
galactic winds, AGN outflows, galaxy-galaxy interactions and others. It
seems that all the processes can contribute to the enrichment. There is
not a single process that always dominates the enrichment. The
efficiencies of the processes vary strongly with galaxy and
environmental properties.
