Star formation rate as a function of time for model BP and model cSFR. Regarding model BP, the star formation rate at a Galactocentric distance of 8.5 kpc is shown. To convert the local star formation rate of model cSFR to M Gyr-1 pc-2, a Galactic scale height of 300 pc is assumed (Roelofs et al. 2007b,a).
