The Influence of Dust Formation Modelling on Na I and K I Line Profiles in Substellar Atmospheres

We aim to understand the correlation between cloud formatio n and alkali line formation in substellar atmospheres.We perform line profile calculatio ns for Na I and K I based on the coupling of our kinetic model for the formation and composit i n of dust grains with 1D radiative transfer calculations in atmosphere models for brown d arfs and giant gas… CONTINUE READING
