My work this summer:
I deconvolved HST FOS spectra of Seyfert 1 galaxies using gaussian curve-fitting to extract broad-line emission fluxes. I also constructed a mean ionizing continuum for the Seyferts using published SED's. The continuum and the broad-line fluxes were then used as input to the CLOUDY photoionization simulation to simulate conditions in the broad line region of active galactic nuclei.
(and if you understood that... let me know what it means)
