The importance of nebular emission for SED modeling of distant star-forming galaxies
Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union
We highlight and discuss the importance of accounting for nebular emission in the SEDs of high redshift galaxies, as lines and continuum emission can contribute significantly or subtly to broad-band photometry. Physical parameters such as the galaxy age, mass, star-formation rate, dust attenuation and others inferred from SED fits can be affected to different extent by the treatment of nebular emission. We analyse a large sample of Lyman break galaxies from z~3-6, and show some main resultsdoi:10.1017/s1743921312008630 fatcat:5sgjyzcpnndkhemqhcb43usus4
