Massive Star Atmospheres and Stellar Winds

Abstract

A standard non-LTE Wolf-Rayet star atmosphere model is compared with an identical model but including line-blanketing. The structures of the two models are presented in detail and the implications of blanketed models for spectroscopic analyses are discussed.
