[50.02] Multiwavelength Star Formation Indicators

H. R. Schmitt (NRAO), D. Calzetti (STScI), L. Armus (CalTech)

We will present a multiwavelength study of star formation indicators for a sample of nearby galaxies. The galaxy sample spans a wide range in luminosity, star formation rate, metallicity, and morphology. We will discuss our high resolution far-ultraviolet HST/STIS images, ground-based H\alpha, and VLA 8.46 GHz radio images, as well as integrated mid/far-IR properties. We compare these different star formation indicators, present empirical calibrations between them, and determine the conditions for the escape of ionizing radiation as a function of the sample parameters.
