Model parameters.

Regular disk magnetic field ASS+RING
z0 = 1 kpc, R0 = 10 kpc
local field strength: 2 μG

Regular halo magnetic field toroidal, asymmetry with plane
maximum strength: 2 μG

Random magnetic fields homogeneous, strength: 3 μG

Cosmic-ray electron density z0 = 0.8 kpc, R0 = 8 kpc, γ =  −3

Thermal electron density NE2001 modified
z0 = 1.83 kpc for thick disk

Volume of the galaxy 40 kpc  ×  40 kpc  ×  10 kpc

Notes. z0: scale-height, R0: radial scale-length, γ: energy spectral index that can be related to the spectral index of synchrotron emission as α = (γ + 1)/2 =  −1 (Iν ∝ να, with Iν being the intensity).
