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
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
The Fourteenth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: First Spectroscopic data from the extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey and from the second phase of the Apache Point
The fourth generation of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-IV) has been in operation since 2014 July. This paper describes the second data release from this phase, and the 14th from SDSS overall
Dust and Recent Star Formation in the Core of NGC5253
(Abridged) Ultraviolet and optical narrow and broad band images of NGC5253 obtained with the HST WFPC2 are used to derive the properties of the dust distribution and the recent star formation history
Sloan Digital Sky Survey IV: Mapping the Milky Way, Nearby Galaxies and the Distant Universe
We describe the Sloan Digital Sky Survey IV (SDSS-IV), a project encompassing three major spectroscopic programs. The Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment 2 (APOGEE-2) is observing
On the Nature of Seyfert Galaxies with High [O III] λ5007 Blueshifts
We have studied the properties of Seyfert galaxies with high [O III] ?5007 blueshifts (blue outliers), originally identified because of their strong deviation from the -->MBH ? ? relation of normal,
Ultraviolet to near-infrared spectral distributions of star-forming galaxies: Metallicity and age effects
Spectral distributions from the UV to the near-IR of a sample of 44 star-forming galaxies are used to calculate the metallicity (O/H), star-formation rate (SFR) and age of the starbursts. The oxygen
Chemical abundance calibrations for the narrow-line region of active galaxies
We investigate two chemical abundance calibrations for the narrow-line region (NLR) of active galaxies in terms of three easily observable optical emission-line ratios, namely, [O III] λλ4959,
We present a spectroscopic study of the stellar populations of low-luminosity active galactic nuclei (LLAGNs). Our main goal is to determine whether the stars that live in the innermost (100 pc
