The Dust Content and Opacity of Actively Star-Forming Galaxies
We present far-infrared (FIR) photometry at 150 and 205 km of eight low-redshift starburst galaxies obtained with the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) ISOPHOT. Five of the eight galaxies are detected
Dust extinction of the stellar continua in starburst galaxies: The Ultraviolet and optical extinction law
We analyze the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) UV and the optical spectra of 39 starburst and blue compact galaxies in order to study the average properties of dust extinction in extended
The Dust Opacity of Star‐forming Galaxies
ABSTRACT The presence of dust in galaxies removes one‐half or more of the stellar energy from the UV‐optical budget of the universe and has a profound impact on our understanding of how galaxies
The Calibration of Mid-Infrared Star Formation Rate Indicators
With the goal of investigating the degree to which the MIR emission traces the SFR, we analyze Spitzer 8 and 24 μm data of star-forming regions in a sample of 33 nearby galaxies with available HST
Dust Masses, PAH Abundances, and Starlight Intensities in the SINGS Galaxy Sample
Physical dust models are presented for 65 galaxies in SINGS that are strongly detected in the four IRAC bands and three MIPS bands. For each galaxy we estimate (1) the total dust mass, (2) the
SINGS: The SIRTF Nearby Galaxies Survey
The SIRTF Nearby Galaxy Survey is a comprehensive infrared imaging and spectroscopic survey of 75 nearby galaxies. Its primary goal is to characterize the infrared emission of galaxies and their
CALIBRATING EXTINCTION-FREE STAR FORMATION RATE DIAGNOSTICS WITH 33 GHz FREE-FREE EMISSION IN NGC 6946
Using free-free emission measured in the Ka band (26-40 GHz) for 10 star-forming regions in the nearby galaxy NGC 6946, including its starbursting nucleus, we compare a number of star formation rate
Template ultraviolet to near-infrared spectra of star-forming galaxies and their application to K-corrections
Template UV-optical spectra of quiescent and starburst galaxies are presented and used to derive Kcorrections as a function of morphological type and redshift. IUE observations and archival data are
DUST-CORRECTED STAR FORMATION RATES OF GALAXIES. II. COMBINATIONS OF ULTRAVIOLET AND INFRARED TRACERS
We present new calibrations of far-ultraviolet (FUV) attenuation as derived from the total infrared to FUV luminosity ratio (IRX) and the FUV-near-UV(NUV) color. We find that the IRX-corrected FUV
Reddening and star formation in starburst galaxies
The reddening properties and the star formation history of a sample of 19 starburst galaxies are investigated using multiwavelength spectroscopy and infrared broad band photometry. The difference in
