HI Absorption in Seyfert Galaxies, with MERLIN

  Still under construction
  Montage of MERLIN 1.4 GHz radio continuum contours overlaying a similar resolution greyscaled HST WFPC-2 image of the Seyfert-2 nuclei of NGC 7674. HI absorption spectra of the main radio components are alos shown. Strong (tau=0.25) HI absorption is, seen against the centarl radio component but not against the other two radio continuum componets impling that the are over which HI is seen is highly localised near to this central component. The central component is beleived to be associated with the Seyfert-2 nuclei. (Beswick et al. in prep.)
