The solar lithium abundance

I: Observations of the solar lithium feature at λ6707.8 Å
  • James W. Brault
  • Edith A. Müller


A detailed observational study of the solar photospheric lithium feature has been carried out with emphasis on center-limb observations, continuum location, possible effects of telluric lines, effects of blending by atomic and molecular lines, and decomposition of the solar spectrum around λ6707 Å.
