[37.05] Models of Dust Emission and Destruction in Shocks

J. C. Raymond, O. Vancura (CfA)

Infrared emission from dust can dominate the cooling rate of shocked gas, and elemental depletion has important effects on the intensity and spectral distribution of X-ray and UV emission. The shocks are vital to the dust population as well, as sputtering and grain-grain collisions in shocks dominate dust destruction in the ISM. While the infrared emission is observed directly, models are required to interpret UV and X-ray spectra in terms of the liberation of refractory elements from dust.
