In science:

We therefore assume reddening to be zero throughout the rest of the discussion.
The Aligned z ~ 1 Radio Galaxy 3C 280
We use the photometry and reddening of BA92, although we note that the BA92 derived the reddening from the V-R colours of the ob jects.
Evidence for high accretion-rates in Weak-Line T Tauri stars?
However, the optical spectra of GRB afterglows, do not generally show strong reddening (Simon et al. 2001; Galama & Wijers 2001).
Absorption in Gamma Ray Burst afterglows
The X-ray NH agree very well with the hydrogen column density expected from the best fit AV r and the visual extinction-reddening ratio appropriate for this model (see Figure 12).
Absorption in Gamma Ray Burst afterglows
The Galactic reddening in the direction of GRB 980329 is estimated as E(B-V)=0.073 mag using the SFD maps.
Absorption in Gamma Ray Burst afterglows
Halpern et al. (1999) report two different values for the Galactic reddening: E(B-V)=0.267 using the SFD maps and E(B-V)=0.348 using the 21 cm Stark et al. (1992) maps and assuming a standard NH to E (B − V ) conversion (Savage & Mathis 1979).
Absorption in Gamma Ray Burst afterglows
These authors report magnitudes already corrected for the Galactic reddening E(B-V)=0.203, estimated using the SFD maps.
Absorption in Gamma Ray Burst afterglows
These sources are heavily reddened and therefore fall through the “standard” (optical) methods of quasar selection.
Discovery of optically faint obscured quasars with Virtual Observatory tools
Fig. 3.— Same as Figure 1 but with reddening corrections applied (see text for details).
Anomalously low PAH emission from low-luminosity galaxies
We determine a reddening towards the supernova of E (B − V ) = 0.14 ± 0.06, using three different methods.
A Study of the Type II-P Supernova 2003gd in M74
The determination of intrinsic colour and luminosity require the reddening and distance to be known.
A Study of the Type II-P Supernova 2003gd in M74
We estimate the reddening towards the supernova, using three different methods, in §3.2 and analyse the velocity evolution in §3.3.
A Study of the Type II-P Supernova 2003gd in M74
Throughout this work we have assumed the galactic reddening laws of Cardelli, Clayton & Mathis (1989) with RV = 3.1.
A Study of the Type II-P Supernova 2003gd in M74
The reddening was estimated towards SN 2003gd using three different methods.
A Study of the Type II-P Supernova 2003gd in M74
It was first of all estimated using the colours of the supernova compared to SN 1999em; secondly using HST photometry of the surrounding stars and finally from the reddening towards nearby Hi i regions.
