Tuesday 27 Apr 2021[Journal Club] Title: The Enigma of Hydrogen Emission in T Tauri Stars

CTTSs are known for their hydrogen emission lines, magnetospheric accretion and mass outflow. By comparing synthetic hydrogen profiles from the radiative transfer code TORUS with observations of CTTSs, we aim to constrain and provide insight into the physics of these systems. Our initial parameter study indicates that the existing models and line broadening mechanisms are insufficient to account for the observed hydrogen emission.
