Semiempirical Models of the Solar Atmosphere. III. Set of Non-LTE Models for Far-Ultraviolet/Extreme-Ultraviolet Irradiance Computation
Semiempirical atmospheric models of solar surface features as observed at moderate resolution are useful tools for understanding the observed solar spectral irradiance variations. Paper I described a set of models constructed to reproduce the observed radiance spectrum for solar surface features at ~2 arcsec resolution that constitute an average over small-scale features such as granulation. Paper II showed that a revision of previous models of low-chromospheric inter-network regions explains the observed infrared CO lines in addition to the UV and radio continuum from submillimeter to centimetric wavelengths. The present paper (1) shows that the Ca II H and K line wing observations are also explained by the new quiet-Sun-composite model, (2) introduces new low-chromospheric models of magnetic features that follow the ideas in Paper II, (3) introduces new upper chromospheric structures for all quiet-Sun and active-region models, and (4) shows how the new set of models explains EUV/FUV observations of spectral radiance and irradiance. This paper also discusses the chromospheric radiative-loss estimates in each of the magnetic features. The new set of models provides a basis for the spectral irradiance synthesis at EUV/FUV wavelengths based on the features observed on the solar surface.
