TUTORIAL - Measuring emission line fluxes with Python and deriving gas properties

Jan 30, 2023

In this tutorial, I will show how to use the Astropy Python module to fit emission lines in a galaxy spectrum, and how the resulting line fluxes and ratios can be used to measure the electron density of the line-emitting gas with the PyNeb module.
