Reverberation Modeling of the Broad Emission Line Region in NGC 5548
Long-term observations of broad-line region (BLR) in the Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 5548 are analyzed and compared with the predictions of the hydromagnetically driven outflow model of Emmering, Blandford and Shlosman Here we use the model to compute the delay between the C IV line and the continuum. We show, by use of the two-dimensional transfer function (2DTF), that the model predicts a red-side-first-response for the emission line.
