Solar abundances of lithium, beryllium and boron

  • Nicolas Grevesse
Article

Abstract

New solar abundances have been derived for Li, Be and B. They are mainly based on high-resolution spectra obtained at the Jungfraujoch Scientific Station (Switzerland). For Li, the abundance results from a discussion of the photospheric and sunspot spectra. Our results, log NLi = 0.42, log NBe = 1.17 and log NB < 2.80 (in the log NH = 12.00 scale), are lower than the previously admitted abundances for these elements. The far UV spectrum (λ < 3000 Å) has also been considered in each case. The meaning of our results is discussed from the point of view of the destruction of these elements during the evolution of the sun.
