NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2001MNRAS.327..369T MERLIN radio observations of CfA Seyferts A.H.C. Thean, T.I. Gillibrand, A. Pedlar and M.J. Kukula Accepted 2001 May 31. Received 2001 May 14; in original form 2000 December 14 ABSTRACT We present new 1.6-GHz (18-cm) MERLIN maps of 15 Seyfert galaxies, with angular resolutions typically 0.1 to 0.3 arcsec. These and previous observations are used to investigate the properties of 19 of the 24 CfA Seyfert galaxies brighter than 2 mJy at 8.4 GHz. This is the first time a significant fraction of the CfA sample has been mapped at this frequency with subarcsecond resolution, and our observations provide the highest resolution radio maps available for several sources. We use our observations to measure the two-point spectral indices of compact radio components, and we investigate the correlation between infrared and radio emission shown by Seyfert galaxies. Our results can be summarized as follows. Resolved structures as small as 20 pc are found in three previously unresolved radio sources, and only four sources show single, unresolved radio components. The mean 1.6 to 8.4 GHz spectral index of 31 radio components is {alpha} = -0.6 +/- 0.1 (S is proportional {nu}^{alpha)^, and approximately 25 per cent of the components have a spectral index flatter than {alpha} = -0.3. The spectral index distributions of type 1 and type 2 Seyferts are statistically indistinguishable. The cores of multiple-component sources tend to have flatter radio spectra than secondary components. The low-resolution infrared (IRAS) emission from Seyfert galaxies is usually dominated by kiloparsec-scale, extranuclear emission regions.
