Chromospheric Magnetic Fields: Observations, Simulations and their Interpretation
2012 (English)In: SECOND ATST-EAST MEETING: MAGNETIC FIELDS FROM THE PHOTOSPHERE TO THE CORONA, SAN FRANCISCO: ASTRONOMICAL SOC PACIFIC , 2012, Vol. 463, 15-23 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The magnetic field of the quiet-Sun chromosphere remains a mystery for solar physicists. The reduced number of chromospheric lines are intrinsically hard to model and only a few of them are magnetically sensitive. In this work, we use a 3D numerical simulation of the outer layers of the solar atmosphere, to asses the reliability of non-LTE inversions, in this case applied to the Ca II lambda 8542 angstrom line. We show that NLTE inversions provide realistic estimates of physical quantities from synthetic observations.
