Integrated photoelectric measurements of the equivalent width $W_{\rm H\beta}$, the [Oiii]/H$\beta$ ratio and the H$\beta$ emission line flux are presented for 31 southern hemisphere galactic Hii regions. The Lyman continuum photon fluxes are obtained for some of these objects. The integrated [Oiii]/H$\beta$ ratios have not shown any statistically significant deviation from non-integrated measurements found in the literature.

Key words: Hii regions -- ISM: general

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
