[28.06] EGRET Observations of Gamma-Ray Emission from Supernova Remnants

J. A. Esposito, P. Sreekumar (USRA, NASA/GSFC), S. D. Hunter (NASA/GSFC), G. Kanbach (MPE)

We have continued our analysis of data from EGRET observations of supernova remnants near the Galactic plane (Esposito et al. 1996). The integral intensities or upperlimits have been determined, and spectra fitted when statistically justified. We have included cycle 4 data for some sources (e.g. IC443 and Monoceros). We will present our gamma-ray results and an interpretation based upon Galactic cosmic ray shock acceleration by supernova remnants.
