Images of the Solar Upper Atmosphere From SUMER on SOHO

Publisher: ESA Publications Division 2003
Number of pages: 209
Investigations of the heating of the corona and the acceleration of the solar wind are two of the prime scientific goals in studying the solar upper atmosphere with the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) of ESA and NASA. The telescope and spectrometer Solar Ultraviolet Measurements of Emitted Radiation (SUMER), one of the twelve scientific instruments aboard SOHO, was designed for spectroscopic studies of the solar chromosphere, transition region, and low corona with emphasis on the dynamics in these regions.

The virial theorem is extremely powerful in understanding problems of stellar astrophysics, but it is also poorly understood by many who study the subject. This book should be viewed as a guided introduction, punctuated by a few examples.

The authors focus on the astrophysical aspects, i.e. a description of the evolution of massive stars and their endpoints, with a special emphasis on the composition of their ejecta in form of stellar winds during the evolution or of explosive ejecta.
