Decompositions of the MODS spectra from 2014 June 08, showing the contribution of the model components to different filters. “BC” is the Balmer continuum, “PL” is the power law, “Host” is the host-galaxy component, and “Lines” are the AGN emission lines. The emission lines are estimated by subtracting the total model from the observed spectrum. Johnson/Cousins optical filter transmission curves (and Swift U) are shown by the dashed black lines; SDSS filters are shown by the dot-dashed lines. The Swift U and u bands are truncated at 3000 Å and the I and z bands are truncated at 1 μm, in order to represent the atmospheric transmission cutoff.
