Fig. 1


Polarized radio continuum intensity (contours) and B vectors of M83 at λ6.17 cm, obtained by combining data from the VLA and Effelsberg telescopes, overlayed on an optical image from the Anglo-Australian Observatory by Dave Malin. The angular resolution is 22″. Faraday rotation of the B vectors has not been corrected, but is small because of the short wavelength and the low inclination of the galaxy.
