Are the Narrow-Line Regions in Active Galaxies Dusty and Radiation Pressure Dominated?

Dopita, Michael; Groves, Brent; Sutherland, Ralph; Binette, Luc; Cecil, Gerald

Description

The remarkable similarity between emission spectra of narrow-line regions (NLRs) in Seyfert galaxies has long presented a mystery. In photoionization models, this similarity implies that the ionization parameter is nearly always the same, about U ∼ 0.01
