GCN Circular 1672
Lifan Wang (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), Dietrich Baade(European Southern Observatory), Peter Hoeflich, and J. Craig Wheeler (University of Texas, Austin) report: "Spectropolarimetry of GRB021004 was obtained on Oct. 05 using the ESO-VLT with FORS1. The spectral coverage is from 350 to 860 nm. Preliminary reduction shows that the synthesized V-band polarimetry is consistent with that reported by Covino et al. (GCN 1595) and Rol et al. (GCN1596). The data are suggestive of polarization changes across the Lyman-alpha absorption features at 401 and 404 nm, and increasing degree of polarization blueward of 400 nm. "
