[11.09] Variability of the Intrinsic Ultraviolet Absorption in Mrk 279

J. E. Scott (NRC/GSFC), G. A. Kriss, J. Kim Quijano, N. Arav, J. Gabel (STScI)

We present an analysis of the variability in the outflow of Mrk 279 based on five epochs of FUSE observations, two of which have simultaneous HST/STIS data. These multiepoch data allow us to correlate changes in the H I, O VI, N V, and C IV absorption profiles with changes in the continuum flux. We combine these data with photoionization models to constrain the geometry of the absorbing outflow.
