We have calculated a large grid of hydrogen-rich supernova photospheres, in which radii, effective temperatures, density profiles, and expansion velocities have been varied. Spherical geometry, radiative equilibrium and LTE level populations are assumed. In the quasi-exact radiative transfer, the dilution of the radiation field, and scattering as well as absorption (by all relevant continuous processes and up to 150 000 lines in some models) are accurately considered. Good agreement can be obtained with the UV and IR spectra of supernovae 1979C, 1980K, and 1987A as observed during the coasting phase. Potential methods of parameter determinations for SN II are briefly discussed.
