Abstract: We are conducting a systematic study of highly-ionized outflows in AGN using archival Suzaku data. To date, we have analyzed 59 observations of 45 AGN using a combined energy-intensity contour plot and Monte Carlo method. We find that ∼ 36% (16/45) of sources analyzed so far show largely unambiguous signatures (i.e., Monte Carlo proabilities of > 95%) of highly-ionized, high-velocity absorption troughs in their X-ray spectra. From XSTAR fitting we find that, overall, the properties of the absorbers are very similar to those found recently by Tombesi et al. (2010, 2011) with XMM-Newton for the same phenomenon.
