Spectral Energy Distributions and Optical Data Analysis of the TANAMI Sources
MetadataShow full item record
The TANAMI (Tracking Active Galactic Nuclei with Austral Milliarcsecond Inter- ferometry) survey is a multi-wavelength study of 89 active galactic nuclei (AGN) seen in the southern hemisphere sky. This project uses archival data to display spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of each of the 89 sources, which are ux versus frequency plots of the sources over many regions of the electromagnetic spectrum from radio waves to gamma rays. Since blazars vary greatly over time, we propose an optical monitor- ing program for the MONET/South telescope in conjunction with ongoing monitoring projects in other wavelength bands.
