Jets: an environmental impact statement

Bicknell, Geoffrey; Saxton, Curtis; Sutherland, Ralph; Midgley, Stuart; Wagner, Stefan J


We review our recent work on the interaction of jets with the interstellar medium of both classical double and young radio galaxies. We propose explanations for the intriguing radio morphology of Hercules A and Pictor A in terms of the complex structure produced near the terminal shock in the jet. This also has ramifications for the interpretation of the high energy emission from Pictor A. Gigahertz Peak Spectrum (GPS) and Compact Steep Spectrum (CSS) sources are now believed to be young radio...[Show more]
