Molecular clouds form out of the diffuse interstellar medium (ISM) within galactic disks and continuously accrete gas and interact with their surroundings as they evolve. Hence the evolution of turbulent, filamentary molecular clouds has to be modeled at the same time as the surrounding multiphase ISM. In the SILCC-ZOOM project, we simulate molecular cloud formation, the star formation within them, and their subsequent dispersal by stellar feedback on sub-parsec scales in 3D, AMR, MHD simulations with the FLASH code including self-gravity, radiative transfer, and a chemical network.
