Abstract : An earth-rotation aperture-synthesis technique was combined with the methods of interference polarimetry to study the total intensity and linear polarization properties of the two radio sources 3C10 and 3C58 with a resolution of approximately one minute of arc at both 1420 and 2880 MHz. These data were then used to calculate the distributions of spectral index, rotation measure, intrinsic position angle, and polarization for the sources. (Author)
