In this paper, the physical conditions within the inhomogeneous solar atmosphere have been reconstructed by means of solving the inverse problem of non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) radiative transfer. The profiles of the λ= 523.42 nm Fe i spectral line of high spatial and time resolution were used as observational data. The velocity field has been studied for the real solar granulation in the superadiabatic layer and overshooting convection region. Also, we investigate the vertical…

Structure of the solar photospheric convection on subgranulation scales
We investigate the structure of convective flows in the solar photosphere on subgranulation scales. The solar granulation pattern is reproduced by solving the inverse problem of nonequilibrium
Solar Surface Convection
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.
On the detection of internal gravity waves in the solar photosphere
The distribution of temperature perturbations over the solar photosphere was reconstructed. The k–ω and phase filtering was applied to Fourier image of space–time variations of temperature in order
Absolute shifts of spectral-line bisectors (the third signature of granulation) are shown to follow the solar pattern, i.e., weaker lines are more blue-shifted than stronger lines, for a selection of
Barium abundances in Cepheids
We derived the barium atmospheric abundances for a large sample of Cepheids, comprising 270 stars. The sample covers a large range of Galactocentric distances, from about 4 to 15 kpc, so it is


Three-dimensional convection simulations of the outer layers of the Sun using realistic physics
This paper describes a series of 3D simulations of shallow inefficient convection in the outer layers of the Sun. The computational domain is a closed box containing the convection-radiation
Realistic Solar Convection Simulations
We report on realistic simulations of solar surface convection that are essentially parameter-free, but include detailed physics in the equation of state and radiative energy exchange. The simulation
Inclusion of Turbulence in Solar Modeling
The general consensus is that in order to reproduce the observed solar p-mode oscillation frequencies, turbulence should be included in solar models. However, until now there has not been any
Five-minute oscillations above granules and intergranular lanes
We discuss the links between the photospheric 5–min oscillations and the granulation pattern using a 30-min time series of CCD spectrograms of solar granulation recorded with high spatial (0′′5) and
Time series of high resolution photospheric spectra in a quiet region of the sun I. Analysis of global and spatial variations of line parameters
A 50 min time series of one-dimensional slit-spectrograms, taken in quiet sun at disk centre, observed at the German Vacuum Tower Telescope (Observatorio del Teide), was used to study the global and
Time series of high resolution photospheric spectra in a quiet region of the Sun - II. Analysis of the variation of physical quantities of granular structures
From the inversion of a time series of high resolution slit spectrograms obtained from the quiet sun, the spatial and temporal distribution of the thermodynamical quantities and the vertical flow
A two-component model of the solar photosphere from the inversion of spectral lines
A two{component model of the solar photosphere is obtained from the inversion of the intensity proles of 22 Fe I spectral lines for which very accurate atomic data (oscillator strengths, central
The effect of finite resolution on solar granulation
Some numerical experiments were performed in order to simulate the effect of finite resolution on solar granulation. When a two-dimensional pattern is smeared, another pattern emerges whose nature
Non-LTE Inversion of Stokes Profiles Induced by the Zeeman Effect
This paper presents a new diagnostic tool for the inference of the thermal, dynamic, and magnetic properties of the solar chromosphere. It consists of a non-LTE inversion code of Stokes profiles
Inversion of Stokes profiles
An inversion code of Stokes line profiles is presented. It allows the recovery of the stratification of the temperature, the magnetic field vector, and the line of sight velocity through the
