Synchrotron radiation and galactic field configurations

  • 25 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


Models of the galactic magnetic field are discussed with respect to their influence on calculated contour maps as well as longitudinal distributions of the synchrotron brightness temperature. A comparison is made with Landecker-Wielebinski (1970) data.
