Abstract: 
In this paper we present simulations of an extragalactic jet interacting with a clumpy and filamentary narrow line region (NLR) similar to the one observed in NGC 1068. We study the kinematic disturbance produced by the interaction. H alpha recombination emissivity maps and the spectral distribution of the emission are calculated. We find that ablation flows from high density clouds in the turbulent cocoon can produce fast, high emissivity flows, resulting in line widths of the order of 1000 km s(-1) comparable to those observed in NGC 1068 and other Seyfert galaxies with radio ejecta.
