[140.09] Spitzer Low Resolution Spectra of Nearby Seyfert Galaxies

We have obtained low-resolution, 5-40 micron spectra of 37 nearby Seyfert Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN). The AGNs were chosen to have a broad range of X-ray determined Hydrogen column densities from Compton thin to Compton thick. The spectral energy distributions are broadly consistent with higher Hydrogen column densities showing greater short wavelength absorption than lower Hydrogen column densities. We also present comparison of line intensities associated with AGN activity and starburst activity.
