V., 1986, 176-180. cited as: We have foreshadowed the budding prospects for mapping the structure of stellar atmospheric inhomogeneities through analyses of photospheric line asymmetries and wavelength shifts. The recent construction of several very-high-resolution stellar spectrometers at large telescopes, together with the use of solar spectrometers for stellar work, promise to make available stellar data of sufficient quality to undertake such analyses. Nevertheless, caution should be taken in making sweeping extrapolations from the Sun, since novel phenomena may well appear, e.g. in some stars the convection cells might be destroyed by “sonic boom” shock waves generated when convective velocities reach the speed of sound (Grandpierre 1981). One wonders whether our current understanding about stellar surfaces is as naive as was our understanding of planets and moons before their revelation by spacecraft. pp.85-86, in: Dravins, D. 1982, PHOTOSPHERIC SPECTRUM LINE ASYMMETRIES AND WAVELENGTH SHIFTS.
