TitleThe Larson-Tinsley Effect in the Ultraviolet: Interacting Versus "Normal" Spiral Galaxies
AuthorsSmith, Beverly J.; Struck, Curtis
AbstractWe compare the UV-optical colors of a well-defined set of optically selected pre-merger interacting galaxy pairs with those of normal spirals. The shorter wavelength colors show a larger dispersion for the interacting galaxies than for the spirals. This result can best be explained by higher star formation rates on average in the interacting galaxies, combined with higher extinctions on average. This is consistent wi ...
