The Solar Spectrum : Proceedings of the Symposium held at the University of Utrecht 26–31 August 1963

A good deal of our information on solar physics and on solar phenomena is derived from the solar spectrum. A quantitative interpretation of this spectrum was only possible after 1920, after the establishment of Bohr's atomic model, the discovery of Saha's law, and the development of spectr...
