  • NASA’s Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) mission, to be launched in December 2012, is devoted to the study of this interface between photosphere and corona. The objective is to trace the flow of energy and plasma through the chromosphere using high-resolution imaging and spectroscopy. In order to interpret the observations, theoretical simulations are needed. Advances are being made in computing the spectrum emitted from solar chromospheric regions based on assumed atmospheric… CONTINUE READING
