Abstract: We present simulated observations of gas kinematics in a galaxy formed in a 10 pc resolution cosmological simulation with the hydrodynamical + N-body code RAMSES, using the new RAMSES2HSIM pipeline with the simulated observing pipeline (HSIM) for the Extremely Large Telescope High Angular Resolution Monolithic Optical and Near-infrared Integral field spectrograph (HARMONI IFS). We post-process the galaxy's gas kinematics and Hα line emission for each simulation cell, and integrate the emission to produce an extinction-corrected input cube. We then simulate observations of the input cube with HARMONI, for a range of exposure times, spatial sampling, and spectral resolution. We analyse the mock observations to recover galaxy properties such as its kinematics and compare with the known simulation values. We investigate the cause of biases between the ‘real’ and ‘observed’ kinematic values, demonstrating the sensitivity of the inferred rotation curve to knowledge of the instrument’s point spread function.
