Abstract

We present inversions based on two different flux-tube models, both of which reproduce the Stokes I and V profiles obtained in active region plages with high accuracy, including the V profile asymmetry. One model is almost identical to that employed by Bellot Rubio et al. (1997, 1999), and results in a significant downflow within the flux tube. The other, although similar in most respects, has mass conservation enforced inside the flux-tubes components.
