While galactic bulges may contain no significant dust of their own, the dust within galaxy discs can strongly attenuate the light from their embedded bulges. Furthermore, such dust inhibits the ability of observationally-determined inclination corrections to recover intrinsic (i.e. dust free) galaxy parameters. Using the sophisticated 3D radiative transfer model of Popescu et al. and Tuffs et al., together with Driver et al.’s recent determination of the average face-on opacity in nearby disc… CONTINUE READING
