GAMA/H-ATLAS: the ultraviolet spectral slope and obscuration in galaxies

Wijesinghe, D. B.; da Cunha, E; Hopkins, Andrew M.; Dunne, L; Sharp, Robert; Gunawardhana, M; Brough, Sarah; Sadler, Elaine M; Driver, Simon P; Baldry, Ivan; Bamford, Steven P.; Liske, Jochen


We use multiwavelength data from the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) and Herschel-ATLAS (H-ATLAS) surveys to compare the relationship between various dust obscuration measures in galaxies. We explore the connections between the ultraviolet (UV) spectral slope, β, the Balmer decrement and the far-infrared (FIR) to 150nm far-ultraviolet (FUV) luminosity ratio. We explore trends with galaxy mass, star formation rate (SFR) and redshift in order to identify possible systematics in these various...[Show more]
