Ultraviolet and optical light from stars is reddened and attenuated by interstellar dust, where different sightlines across a galaxy suffer varying amounts of extinction. Tamura et al. (2009) developed an approximate method to correct for dust extinction, dubbed the “βV method,” by comparing the observed to an empirical estimate of the intrinsic flux ratio of visible and ∼3.5 μm emission.
