Abstract

In 2011 Lick Observatory carried out a 2.5 month reverberation mapping campaign using the 3 meter Shane telescope monitoring 15 low redshift galaxies. The goal was to determine the black hole mass for each of these galaxies. My job was to use the JAVELIN software package to determine the size of the Broad Line Region around each of these objects and compare the results to those calculated using other methods. Here I present my findings for the 6 targets that JAVELIN found lag times for at least one of the emission lines. I also include the results using CCF which are in the process of being published.
