Computations have been made of model stellar atmospheres corresponding to spectral types from about Go to Ao. The atmospheres have been constructed with radiative temperature gradients and also with adiabatic gradients in those regions where they are less than radiative gradients. The calculations have been carried so far as to give the monochromatic fluxes and colour temperatures of the stars. It is found that the difference of colour gradients between “ radiative ” and “ adiabatic ” models is easily accessible to observation (0·58 in the most extreme case).
