Characterizing Dust Attenuation in Local Star-forming Galaxies: Inclination Effects and the 2175 angstrom Feature

Battisti, Andrew; Calzetti, Daniela; Chary, R R


We characterize the influence that inclination has on the shape and normalization in average dust attenuation curves derived from a sample of similar to 10,000 local star-forming galaxies. To do this, we utilize aperture-matched multiwavelength data from the Galaxy Evolution Explorer, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope, and the Two Micron All-sky Survey. We separate our sample into groups according to axial ratio (b/a) and obtain an estimate of their average...[Show more]
