We use a Chandra observation of the poor cluster AWM 4 to map the temperature and abundance of the intracluster medium, so as to examine the influence of the central radio galaxy on its environment. While the cluster core is generally enriched to near-solar abundances, we find evidence of supersolar abundances correlated with the radio jets, extending ∼35 kpc from the core of the central dominant galaxy NGC 6051 along its minor-axis. We conclude that the enriched gas has been transported out of… Expand
