Abstract

Fast outflows of the ionized plasma, probably lunched in proximity of Supermassive Black Hole, are responsible for blue-shifted Broad Absorption Lines (BALs) in quasar spectrum. Outflows together with powerful jets produced in AGN are important feedback processes. Therefore, understanding physics behind BAL outflows might be a key to comprehend Galaxy Evolution as a whole. Discovery of the existence of radio-loud BAL quasars gave us another opportunity to study the BAL phenomenon, this time on the ground on radio emission. The radio emission is an additional tool to understand the BAL quasars, their orientation and age, by the VLBI imaging (detection of radio jets and their direction, size determination), the radio-loudness parameter distribution and variability study.
