Dust-Corrected Star Formation Rates in Galaxies with Outer Rings

  • I. Kostiuk
  • O. Silchenko

The star formation rates SFR, as well as the SFR surface densities ΣSFR and absolute stellar magnitudes MAB, are determined and corrected for interinsic dust absorption for 34 disk galaxies of early morphological types with an outer ring structure and ultraviolet emission from the ring. These characteristic are determined for the outer ring structures and for the galaxies as a whole. Data from the space telescopes GALEX (in the NUV and FUV ultraviolet ranges) and WISE (in the W4 22 μm infrared band) are used. The average relative deviation in the corrected SFR and ΣSFR derived from the NUV and FUV bands is only 19.0%, so their averaged values are used for statistical consideration. The relations between the dust-corrected SFR characteristics, UV colours, the galaxy morphological type, absolute magnitude are illustrated.
