Dynamic Hydrogen Ionization

  title={Dynamic Hydrogen Ionization},
  author={M Carlsson},
We investigate the ionization of hydrogen in a dynamic Solar atmosphere. The simulations include a detailed non-LTE treatment of hydrogen, calcium and helium but lack other important elements. Furthermore, the omission of magnetic fields and the one-dimensional approach make the modeling unrealistic in the upper chromosphere and higher. We discuss these limitations and show that the main results remain valid for any reasonable chromospheric conditions. As in the static case we find that the… CONTINUE READING
