VLA Polarimetry of VLBI Core–Jet Sources


Radio imaging of VLBI core-jet sources can be used to examine the case for continuity of jet-like features between parsec and circumgalactic scales. Futhermore, polarimetry of such sources allows investigation of the dominant magnetic field topologies as a function of linear offset from the central engine. Examination of these continuity and field topology issues is essential for an understanding of how energy is channeled from the nuclear regions to the circumgalactic environment.
