The movies show the evolution of the metallcity in the ICM for a merging model cluster. The region has 5 Mpc a side. The X-ray weighted metal map is shown for only Ram-Pressure Stripping acting as enrichment process, for Galactic Winds as enrichment process and for both mechanism acting. The quantities are shown in solar abundance starting at a redshift of z=7. Metals falling along a filament are nicely visible at the northern part.
