UW Astronomer: Karen Bjorkman


Chi-Oph will be observed as a low-inclination angle counterpart of Zeta Tau. This star has a similar spectral type and distance, but it is not a shell star. Therefore, it should serve as a comparison for the effects of inclination angle on the iron (Fe) line depolarization.
