Internal Dust Correction Factors for Star Formation Rates Derived for Dusty HII Regions and Starburst Galaxies
Star formation rates in galaxies are frequently estimated using the Balmer line fluxes of their H II regions. However, these can be systematically underestimated because dust competes for the absorption of Lyman continuum photons in the ionized gas. This
