A correction for GALEX spectroscopic UV flux distributions from comparisons with CALSPEC and IUE.


Abstract (from CDS):

The CALSPEC database of absolute spectral energy distributions (SEDs) from the Hubble Space Telescope is based on pure hydrogen model atmosphere calculations for three unreddened white dwarf stars and represents the current UV flux calibration standard with a precision approaching 1% for well observed stars. Following our previous work to correct International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) fluxes, this paper provides an average correction for the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) spectral database that places GALEX fluxes on the current CALSPEC scale. Our correction is derived by comparing GALEX spectroscopic flux distributions with CALSPEC and corrected IUE SEDs. This recalibration is relevant for any project based on GALEX archival spectroscopic data, e.g., UV or multi-wavelength analyses, correlating GALEX spectra with other existing or future databases, and planning of new observations. The recalibration will be applied to our planned catalog of corrected GALEX SEDs.
