THE PHOENIX MODELS BY FRANCE ALLARD AND COLLABORATORS

These models use static, spherical symmetric, 1D simulations to completely describe the atmospheric emission spectrum. The models account for the formation of molecular bands, such as those of water vapor, methane, or titanium dioxide, solving for the transfer equation over more than 20,000 wavelength points on average - producing synthetic spectra with 2 Angstrom resolution. The line selection is repeated at each iteration of the model until it has converged and the thermal structure obtained. The models here are calculated with a cloud model, valid across the entire parameter range.
