The infrared emission from the narrow line region

Groves, Brent; Dopita, Michael; Sutherland, Ralph


We present models for the mid- and far- infrared emission from the Narrow Line Region (NLR) of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN). Using the MAPPINGS III code we explore the effect of typical NLR parameters on the spectral characteristics of the IR emission. These include useful IR emission line ratio diagnostic diagrams for the determination of these parameters, as well as Star formation-AGN mixing diagnostics. We also examine emission line to continuum correlations which would assist in separating...[Show more]
