Observations Bearing on Convection

  • K.H. Böhm (a1)

Summary

  • 1. Solar observations contain a considerable amount of information on the hydrodynamics of stellar convection. We emphasize and discuss especially
  • (a)the existence of two very different cell sizes,
  • (b) the unexpectedly high cross-correlation between vertical velocities and temperature fluctuations in the granulation,
  • (c) the fast "downdrafts" in intergranular regions,
  • (d) the existence of cells much larger than the scale height,
  • (e) the strange behavior of the temperature fluctuations in the supergranulation, and
  • (f) the importance of convective overshoot.

  • 2. The Li-Be problem and its possible relevance as an indicator of convective overshoot is briefly summarized.

  • 3. Convection may have a stronger influence on the observable properties of Herich (“non-DA”) white dwarfs than of most other stars. We discuss especially
  • (a) the persistence of outer convection zones through a very wide range of effective temperatures,
  • (b) the occurence of convection in high layers of the atmosphere,
  • (c) the relatively high efficiency of convection in white dwarf atmospheres, and
  • (d) the relevance of convection to the cooling problem.
