Solar and stellar photospheres represent the layers so much available to observations, forming the interface among the inner and the skin of the celebrities. The sunlight surroundings is a wealthy physics laboratory, within which the full spectrum of radiative, dynamical, and magnetic tactics that tranfer strength into area could be saw. because the primary procedures occur on very small spatial scales, we'd like excessive· answer observations to discover them. nonetheless the small-scale tactics act jointly to shape international houses of the solar, that have their origins within the sunlight inside. The fast advances in observational innovations and theoreticallllodelling over the last decade made it very well timed to compile scientists from east and west to the 1st lAU Symposium in this subject. The physics of the photosphere contains advanced interactions among magnetic fields, convection, waves, and radiation. up to now decade our knowing of those gener­ best friend small-scale constructions and tactics has been dramatically complex. New instrumen­ tations, on flooring and in area, have given us new potential to review the granular convection. Diagnostic tools in Stokes polarimetry have allowed us to move past the restrictions of spatial answer to discover the constitution and dynamics of the subarcsec magnetic struc­ tures. large numerical simulations of the interplay among convection and magnetic fields utilizing robust supercomputers are supplying deepened actual perception. Granulation, magnetic fields, and dynamo methods are being explored within the photospheres of different stars, guided by way of our better knowing of the sun photosphere.

THERMAL BIFURCATION OF THE OUTER PHOTOSPHERE T. R. AYRES Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado, USA ABSTRACT. The degree of thermal heterogeneity at the base of the solar chromosphere is substantially beyond that simulated in the best-available multicomponent models; casting serious doubts on inferences drawn from them. Everyone knows that the chromosphere of the Sun is hot. , Athay 1976). Virtually all empirical models of the solar outer atmosphere have incorporated such a temperature inversion.

Rutten 2 1 Main Astronomical Observatory, Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR, 252127 Kiev, USSR 2Sterrekundig Instituut, Postbus 80000, 3508 TA Utrecht, The Netherlands ABSTRACT. We use NLTE modelling of the alkali resonance lines and of C I and o I high-excitation multiplets to test their quality as temperature diagnostics of the up- per photosphere, in the context of Avrett's NLTE recovery of the LTE Holweger-Muller model below the temperature minimum and Ayres' bifurcation into hot and cool components above the temperature minimum.

Such a grid of models can be used to explore 27 the nature of the nonradiative heating mechanism in a more favorable light than present thermal profiles, which ignore the important role of cool gas in the low chromosphere.
