Seyferts in 3D: Probing the kinematic signatures of gas fueling

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We have conducted a 3D imaging spectroscopic survey of 15 nearby Seyfert and control non-active galaxies, using the SAURON Integral Field Unit on the WHT. One goal of the project is to search for dynamical triggers of nuclear activity in nearby galaxies. We present here the preliminary results of the kinematic analysis of the gaseous and stellar velocity fields.
