Abstract

We present preliminary results of a multifrequency and multiresolution study carried out with the Australia Telescope Compact Array for nine of the ten extended radio galaxies located in the merging cluster complexes A3558 and A3528, at the centre of the Shapley Concentration. We found that 5 out of the 9 extended radio galaxies are active radio galaxies, i.e. they have a clear active radio nucleus coincident with the central region of the associated optical galaxy, radio jets and extended lobes; the remaining four lack an obvious radio nucleus, have a very diffuse and amorphous morphology and exhibit peculiar spectral properties. We call these radio sources as remnants and propose that they are (a) either radio galaxies where the nuclear activity has ceased; or (b) regions where pre-existing electrons have been reaccelerated as consequence of shocks due to cluster mergers.
