Hello, I'm quite new with the jupyter enviroment, and have some issue regarding SubLink merger trees. There is a function that allow us to find out how many major mergers a certain halo had; but i'd like to know the snapshot (or redshift ideally) of when these mergers happened. Is there a way to do so? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Cristian,

This isn't directly built in, but you can edit the numMergers() function (or better yet, extend it by writing a new function) to add this without too much trouble.

Alternatively, you could make an API request for the "sublink/simple.json" return, which provides a list of subhalo IDs and corresponding snapshots of mergers. (You could make these API requests from within the Lab environment as well).
