Extract

The researches into extended emission line region (EELR) give us the valuable informations about the nucleus. A recent study of the EELR in the Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 4151 by Yoshida and Ohtani (1993) have revealed that a strongly asymmetric radiation field in this typical Seyfert 1. They have suggested the anisotropy may be caused inside the BLR. It is important to examine if any other Seyfert 1 galaxy has an anisotropic nuclear radiation.

The famous Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 3516 has EELR which extends ∼ 10” on either side of the nucleus. The morphology of the EELR is Z-shape. This nearby (D=38.9Mpc) galaxy is of type SBO for which the object is expected to be free from contamination by HII regions and dust clouds.
