Abstract / Description of output

The continua of type 1 Seyferts from 0.3 to 100 microns have been examined. The authors focus on the modifying effects of dust, both in terms of absorption and re-radiation. After allowance is made for dust and the presence of extranuclear contributions to the IRAS fluxes, there remains a ubiquitous underlying distribution which the authors believe to be non-thermal. There is evidence that the thermal infrared components corresponding to hot and warm dust may be associated with the broad and narrow emission line regions.
