IFU observations of luminous type II AGN - I. Evidence for ubiquitous winds

McElroy, R.; Croom, Scott M; Pracy, Michael; Sharp, Robert; Ho, I-Ting; Medling, Anne


We present observations of 17 luminous (log(L[O III]/L) > 8.7) local (z < 0.11) type II AGN. Our aim is to investigate the prevalence and nature of AGN-driven outflows in these galaxies by combining kinematic and ionization diagnostic information. We use non-parametric methods (e.g. W80, the width containing 80 per cent of the line flux) to assess the line widths in the central regions of our targets. The maximum values of W80 in each galaxy are in the range 400–1600 km s−1, with a mean of...[Show more]
