Abstract

A computer code is proposed for the computation of simple NLTE models of solar prominences. These models consist of plane-parallel slabs, with constant pressure and temperature, standing vertically above the solar surface. Each model is defined by five parameters: temperature, density, geometrical thickness, microturbulent velocity and height above the solar surface. The code computes the electron density, hydrogen level populations inside the slab, and determines the line profiles and continua emitted by the slab. An example of application of this code is given.
