Starburst-AGN mixing-I. NGC 7130

Davies, Rebecca; Rich, J.; Kewley, Lisa; Dopita, Michael


We present an integral field spectroscopic study of the luminous infrared galaxy NGC 7130, a known starburst-active galactic nucleus (AGN) composite galaxy. We employ standard emission-line ratio diagnostics and maps of velocity dispersion and velocity field to investigate how the dominant ionizing sources change as a function of radius. From the signatures of both star formation and AGN activity we show that NGC 7130 is a remarkably clean case of starburst-AGN mixing. We find a smooth...[Show more]
