Internal Dust Correction Factors for Star Formation Rates Derived for Dusty HII Regions and Starburst Galaxies

Dopita, Michael; Groves, Brent; Sutherland, Ralph; Kewley, Lisa


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
