Radio continuum properties of isolated galaxies: a very radio quiet sample. Leon S., Verdes-Montenegro L., Sabater J., Espada D., Lisenfeld U., Ballu A., Verley S., Bergond G., Garcia E. <Astron.

The study of the radio properties of the AMIGA sample is intended to characterize the radio continuum emission for a sample least affected by the local environment, thus providing a reference against which less isolated and interacting samples can be compared. Radio continuum data at 325, 1420, and 4850MHz were extracted from the WENSS, NVSS/FIRST, and GB6 surveys, respectively. The source extractions have been obtained from reprocessing the data and new detections added to the cross- matched detections with the respective survey catalogs. We focus on the complete AMIGA subsample composed of 719 galaxies. A catalog of radio fluxes was obtained from the above four surveys. Comparison between the NVSS and FIRST detections indicates that the radio continuum is coming from disk-dominated emission in spiral galaxies, in contrast to the results found in high-density environments where nuclear activity is more frequent. The comparison of the radio continuum power with a comparable sample, which is however not selected with respect to its environment, the Condon et al. UGC-SF sample of star-forming field galaxies, shows a lower mean value for the AMIGA sample. We have obtained radio-to-optical flux ratios (R) using the NVSS radio continuum flux. The distribution of R for the AMIGA galaxies is consistent with a sample dominated by radio emission from star formation (SF) and a small number of active galactic nuclei (AGN), with less than 3% of the sample with R>100. We derived the radio luminosity function (RLF) and total power density of the radio continuum emission for the AMIGA sample at 1.4GHz, and compared them with results from other low-redshift studies. The Schechter fit of the RLF indicates a major weight of the low-luminosity galaxies. The results indicate the very low level of radio continuum emission in our sample of isolated galaxies, which is dominated by mild disk SF. It confirms thus the AMIGA sample as a suitable template to effectively quantify the role of interactions in samples extracted from denser environments. Description: Table 2 gives the radio flux density and radio power at 325/352MHz (from the WENSS survey), 1420MHz (from the NVSS survey) and 4850MHz (from GB6 survey) for the whole original Catalog of Isolated Galaxies (CIG, Karachentseva, 1973, VII/82), including 1050 galaxies. Note that object #781 is a globular cluster (Pal 15) and should not be considered. The codes for the origin of data are as follows: 0 stands for no data, 1 if included in the original catalog (WENSS VIII/62, NVSS VIII/65, or GB6 VIII/40), 2 if determined from this work and 3 if extracted from NED. Reference code 4 indicates FIRST (VIII/71) detection without a corresponding NVSS detection.
