  • Monitoring of active galactic nuclei. IV. The Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 4593
  • 1994
  • Ingår i: Astronomy and Astrophysics. - 0004-6361 .- 1432-0746. ; 284:1, s. 33-4343

    • Results of a five-month campaign of optical monitoring the Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 4593 are presented. High resolution Halpha and Hbeta spectra and direct images in the Johnson U, B, V, R and I bands were obtained between January and June 1990. The emission lines and the continuum showed strong variations on time scales of weeks to days. The Halpha line varied by more than 30% within only 5 days. Cross-correlating the light curves of the Balmer lines with that of the optical continuum gives a lag of around 4 days. Therefore, this low luminosity Seyfert galaxy may have one of the smallest broad line regions known so far

    • For pt.II see ibid., vol.269, no.1-2, p.39-53 (1993). The authors present the results of a five-month monitoring campaign of the active galactic nucleus in NGC 3227. The Hbeta and Halpha emission lines and the optical continuum have been analysed. The optical AGN continuum and the broad-line region (BLR) emission in NGC 3227 appear to vary by about 40% on a timescale of 1.5 month. The levels of the broad-line emission and the 675.0 nm continuum are well correlated, a fact consistent with the assumption that the BLR material is photoionised by the central continuum source. Cross-correlation analyses between the light curves of the 675.0 nm AGN continuum and the BLR H emission indicate that the lag of the BLR emission with respect to the continuum variations is 17plusmn7 days. This result suggests that the BLR clouds that are affected by the changes in the flux of the central ionising source lie about 17 light days away from it

  • Spectroscopic monitoring of active galactic nuclei. II. The Seyfert-1 galaxy NGC 3516
  • 1993
  • Ingår i: Astronomy and Astrophysics. - 0004-6361 .- 1432-0746. ; 269:1-2, s. 39-5353

    • The authors present the results of a five month spectroscopic monitoring campaign of the Seyfert-1 galaxy NGC 3516. Using a new calibration method and applying a correction for seeing differences during the various observations they can scale the spectra to each other with a much higher accuracy than hitherto achieved. NGC 3516 shows large amplitude variations on a time scale of several weeks. Asymmetric profile variations occur on the same time scale as the continuum variations. The authors show the presence of a varying dip on the blue wing of the Hbeta profile, which is not present on the Halpha profile, and which corresponds to the absorption features previously seen in the UV emission lines of NGC 3516. From cross-correlation analysis they find a time lag of 14plusmn2 days for the Halpha and 7plusmn3 days for the Hbeta emission-line response to continuum variations

  • Hysteresis in broad-line regions of active galactic nuclei
  • 1994
  • Ingår i: Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. - 0035-8711 .- 1365-2966. ; 271:3, s. 561-572572

    • The response of emission-line luminosities to changes in the observed continuum in active galaxies is commonly used for reverberation mapping (RM) of the emission-line region. The method assumes regularity in the continuum source and linearity in the line response to the continuum, and that the phase-space distribution of the line-emitting gas is constant in time. The wealth of information contained in the detailed line profiles is under-utilized in current methods of RM. The authors propose a new method to improve this situation. The authors define normalized profiles and show how their use enables one to explore details of the emission-line region that have hitherto eluded detection. Furthermore, the authors investigate the possibility of testing the validity of the assumptions as used in the standard application of RM. The authors present new methods, the hysteresis test and the Q concept - also based on the line profiles - to test the basic assumptions of RM. The test fails when applied to NGC 4151. The authors show that there is good evidence either for significantly extended and complex emission-line regions, or for changes in the mass distribution over time-scales of months or more - i.e. on time-scales comparable to the length of typical observing campaigns

  • An algorithm for the relative scaling of spectra
  • 1992
  • Ingår i: Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. - 0004-6280 .- 1538-3873. ; 104:678, s. 700-703703
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • A method is described for the automatic relative scaling of spectra in which one or more lines with constant flux are present. The algorithm takes into account differences in spectral resolution, flux factors, and spectral shifts. It was developed for the relative calibration of series of optical spectra obtained in variability studies of active galactic nuclei but it also can be used for other purposes, e.g., the subtraction of an underlying stellar continuum in AGN with a template spectrum. Tests show that a high degree of accuracy is obtained, and that the method is superior to scaling the spectra by eye or measuring narrow-band fluxes

  • Seeing and aperture effects on [O III]-based flux calibration of AGN spectra. NGC 3516 : a case study
  • 1992
  • Ingår i: Astronomy and Astrophysics. - 0004-6361 .- 1432-0746. ; 266:1, s. 72-7676
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In variability studies of the broad emission lines in the spectra of active galactic nuclei, the narrow emission lines are generally used to flux calibrate spectra taken at different epochs to each other. In objects where the narrow-line region is resolved, seeing affects the ratio of narrow-line flux to broad-line and continuum flux entering the aperture since the broad-line region and the continuum source are unresolved. Thus observing under different seeing conditions introduces artificial correlated variations of the continuum and broad-line fluxes if one assumes the narrow lines to be constant in flux. The authors show that one can correct for this effect by simulating seeing variations using a narrow-band [O III] image, taken in good seeing conditions, of the nearby Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 3516, in which the narrow-line region is clearly resolved and extends over more than 20". They also show that centring the aperture on the object consistently is very important and miscentring is also a source of artificial variability of the broad-line and continuum fluxes
