A2_3 Observational evidence to support the existence of BLR in AGN

Christopher Johnson, Sam Rolfe, Mark Wilson, Ryland Evill


Observational results of the integrated broad line flux, FL, against ionising continuum flux, FC, in AGN often show a tendency for FL to plateau at significantly high values of FC. We present a quantitative theory to explain this behaviour as evidence for the existence of a Broad Line Region in Active Galactic Nuclei.
