The fluxes for nine atomic forbidden and three molecular hydrogen mid-infrared emission lines are also provided, along with upper limits in key lines for infrared-faint targets. The SINGS sample shows a wide range in the ratio of [SIII]18.71um/[SIII]33.48um, but the average ratio of the ensemble indicates a typical interstellar electron density of 300-400cm-3 on ∼23x15" scales and 500-600cm-3 using ∼11x9" apertures, independent of whether the region probed is a star-forming nuclear, a star-forming extranuclear, or an active galactic nuclei (AGN) environment. Description: The SINGS sample (Kennicutt et al., 2003PASP..115..928K) of 75 galaxies and 88 extranuclear regions covers a broad swath of the extragalactic environments found in the local universe. High-resolution spectroscopy (R∼600) was obtained in the Short-High (10-19um) and Long-High (19-37um) modules of Spitzer. File Summary:

Global notes: Note (G1): The nuclear targets are listed first followed by the extranuclear targets. The nuclei for eight SINGS galaxies are not listed in this table. No high resolution infrared spectral data were taken for the optical centers of Holmberg I, Holmberg II, M81 Dwarf A, M81 Dwarf B, IC 2574, DDO 154, NGC 3034 (M82), and NGC 6822. Note (G2): Flags as follows: a = Considered to harbor an AGN, based on optical spectroscopy (Moustakas et al., 2010, Cat. J/ApJS/190/233). b = The Short-High maps are 45x33" instead of the standard ∼23x15". c = The infrared emission peaks outside of the field of view of the nuclear spectral maps. The infrared center was thus observed as an extranuclear target, and the data from those observations are listed further down the table. Note (G3): Calibration uncertainties are an additional ∼25%.
