Modelling NIR molecular lines for Miras
2006 (English)In: Memorie della Societa Astronomica Italiana, v.77, 2006, 180-181 p.Conference paper (Other scientific)
The atmospheric structure of Mira variables is considerably influenced by pulsation. Molecular absorption lines in the near-infrared (NIR), especially second overtone CO lines, show therefore a characteristic behaviour in time-series of high-resolution spectra. We computed synthetic CO line profiles based on a new dynamic model atmosphere and derived radial velocities (RVs) from the Doppler shifted lines. For the first time, we could quantitatively reproduce observations of the very typical, discontinuous RV curves.
