ESO 148-IG002 represents a transformative stage of galaxy evolution, containing two galaxies at close separation which are currently coalescing into a single galaxy. We present integral field data of this galaxy from the ANUWide Field Spectrograph. We analyse our integral field data using optical line ratio maps and velocity maps. We apply active galactic nucleus (AGN), starburst and shock models to investigate the relative contribution from star formation, shock excitation and AGN activity to...[Show more]
