Título: Coronal Line Forest AGN: a NIR overview

Resumo: Very recently, a new set of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) dubbed Coronal-Line Forest (CLiF) were introduced in the literature. These sources are characterized by a superb coronal line (CL) spectrum among other remarkable properties that constrast to what is found in typical AGNs. This proposal is aimed at collecting NIR spectra of CLiF AGN candidates identified by us from SDSS to fully characterize the CLR of these objects. The larger set of CLs available in the NIR will allow us to set tighter constraints on the physical conditions producing these lines as well as to set a robust upper limit on the location of the coronal line region. Our results will represent a step forward in understanding not only CLiFs AGNs but also CLs overall.
