Abstract [en]

The physical structures of the outer atmospheres of red giants are not known. They are certainly complex, and a range of recent observations are showing that we need to embrace non-classical model atmospheres to interpret these regions. This region's properties are of importance, not the least for an understanding of the mass-loss mechanism for these stars. Here we present observational constraints on the outer regions of red giants, based on mid-IR, high spectral resolution spectra. We also discuss possible non-LTE effects and highlight a new non-LTE code that will be used to analyse the spectra of these atmospheric layers. We conclude by mentioning our new SOFIA/EXES observations of red giants at 67 mu m, where the vibration-rotation lines of water vapour can be detected and spectrally resolved for the first time.
