Radiative-hydrodynamical simulations of solar surface convection can be used as 2D/3D time-dependent models of the solar atmosphere to predict the emergent spectrum, and the resulting detailed spectral line profiles agree spectacularly well with observations without invoking any micro- and macroturbulence parameters.
