Electron temperature and ionization structure of the IC 1318 b, c nebular complex

  • C. Goudis


An electron temperature estimate based on the absoluteB Hα/B[Nii] ratio is established over this part of the IC 1318 b, c, complex for which the absorption of light by dust is demonstrably low. This estimate gives an electron temperature of 6900 K±1200 K. Contour maps showing the overall distribution of the electron temperatureTe for constantf(=N(N+)/N(N)) and the overall distribution off for constantTe are also produced. The limitations of the method and the validity of the results are also discussed.
