Main Questions[edit]

  • What is the point of talking about specific intensity?
  • Why use the Jansky? What does flux density mean?
  • Which quantities depend upon observing conditions and which are intrinsic to the source?


The NRAO Essential Radio Astronomy course explains this pretty well in their chapter on Brightness.
