NED Abstract

Copyright by Astronomical Society of Japan. 2008PASJ...60S.277M The Suzaku Observation of NGC3516: Complex Absorption and the Broad and Narrow FeK Lines Markowitz, A.; Reeves, J. N.; Miniutti, G.; Serlemitsos, P.; Kunieda, H.; Yaqoob, T.; Fabian, A. C.; Fukazawa, Y.; Mushotzky, R.; Okajima, T.; Gallo, L. C.; Awaki, H.; Griffiths, R. E. Abstract. We present results from a 150 ksec Suzaku observation of the Seyfert 1.5 NGC 3516 in October 2005. The source was in a relatively highly absorbed state. Our best-fit model is consistent with the presence of a low-ionization absorber which has a column density near 5 * 10^{22} cm^{-2} and covers most of the X-ray continuum source (covering fraction 96-100%). A high-ionization absorbing component, which yields a narrow absorption feature consistent with Fe K XXVI, is confirmed. A relativistically broadened Fe K {alpha} line is required in all fits, even after the complex absorption is taken into account; an additional partial-covering component is an inadequate substitute for the continuum curvature associated with the broad Fe line. A narrow Fe K {alpha} emission line has a velocity width consistent with the Broad Line Region. The low-ionization absorber may be responsible for producing the narrow Fe K {alpha} line, though a contribution from additional material out of the line of sight is possible. We include in our model soft band emission lines from He- and H-like ions of N, O, Ne and Mg, consistent with photo-ionization, though a small contribution from collisionally-ionized emission is possible.
