NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2015MNRAS.446..943V Optical supernova remnants in nearby galaxies and their influence on star formation rates derived from Halpha emission Vucetic, M. M.; Arbutina, B.; Urosevic, D. Abstract. In this paper, we present the most up-to-date list of nearby galaxies with optically detected supernova remnants (SNRs). We discuss the contribution of the H {alpha} flux from the SNRs to the total H {alpha} flux and its influence on the derived star formation rate (SFR) for 18 galaxies in our sample. We found that the contribution of SNR flux to the total H {alpha} flux is 5 +/- 5 per cent. Due to the observational selection effects, the SNR contamination of SFRs derived herein represents only a lower limit. Key words: stars: formation, ISM: supernova remnants, galaxies: ISM, galaxies: star formation
