The double reversal at the center of the spatially-averaged profiles of the H and K resonance lines in the solar atmosphere has been used as a probe to give the distribution of temperature and density with height. Details of the interpretations depend on the mechanism assumed for the formation of the central reversals. The non-LTE theory of stellar atmospheres has succeeded in explaining a symmetric double reversal; the history of this effort has recently been reviewed by Linsky and Avrett (1970).
