NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2013MNRAS.435.3122G A test of the failed disc wind scenario for the origin of the broad-line region in active galactic nuclei Galianni, Pasquale; Horne, Keith Abstract. It has been recently proposed that the broad-line region in active galactic nuclei originates from dusty clouds driven from the accretion disc by radiation pressure, at a distance from the black hole where the disc is cooler than the dust sublimation temperature. We test this scenario by checking the consistency of independent broad-line region and accretion disc reverberation measurements, for a sample of 11 well-studied active galactic nuclei. We show that independent disc and broad-line region reverberation mapping measurements are compatible with a universal disc temperature at the Hbeta radius of T(R_Hbeta_) ~ 1670 +/- 231 K which is close to typical dust sublimation temperatures. Key words: galaxies: active, quasars: general, galaxies: Seyfert
