Abstract (from CDS):

We collate active galactic nuclei (AGN) with reported detections of both relativistic reflection and ultrafast outflows. By comparing the inclination of the inner disc from reflection with the line-of-sight velocity of the outflow, we show that it is possible to meaningfully constrain the geometry of the absorbing material. We find a clear relation between the velocity and inclination, and demonstrate that it can potentially be explained either by simple wind geometries or by absorption from the disc surface. Due to systematic errors and a shortage of high-quality simultaneous measurements our conclusions are tentative, but this study represents a proof-of-concept that has a great potential.
