VAN DER KRUIT TO SPITZER: A NEW LOOK AT THE FAR–INFRARED–RADIO CORRELATION
We present an initial look at the far-infrared–radio correlation within the starforming disks of four nearby, nearly face–on galaxies (NGC 2403, NGC3031, NGC5194, and NGC6946). Using Spitzer MIPS imaging and WSRT radio continuum data, we are able to probe variations in the logarithmic 70 μm/22 cm (q70) flux density ratios across each disk at sub–kpc scales.
