Modeling IR spectral energy distributions: a pilot study of starburst parameters and silicate absorption curves for some GOALS galaxies
This paper describes a pilot study into the spectral energy distribution (SED) fitting and the derivation of physical parameters for 19 galaxies observed as part of the Great Observatories All-sky LIRG Survey (GOALS) survey as observed with the Spitzer Space Telescope. For this we have used the pan-spectral fitting tools developed in a series of papers by Dopita and his co-workers. We show that the standard Lee and Draine 'astronomical silicate' model cannot provide a good fit to the silicate...[Show more]
