3D Radiative Transfer Modeling of the Red Supergiant NML Cyg
Other - Master thesis report, 2021
We analyze carbon monoxide emission around the red supergiant NML Cyg ob- served with the ground based JCMT 15 meter and Onsala 20 meter telescopes, as well as the HIFI instrument aboard the Herschel Space Observatory. The line pro- files have complex shapes, suggestive of multiple components in the stellar outflow. 3D radiative transfer modeling is used to recreate the observed line profiles.
