An example disc model

This page offers full insight into one typical T Tauri ProDiMo model.
The parameters of this model are chosen to roughly match the continuum and line fluxes of real class II T Tauri stars.

An example TTauri ProDiMo model

The following ProDiMo model of a “typical TTauri star” is designed to predict continuum and line fluxes that roughly resemble the observations of real class II TTauri stars. The effective stellar temperature is chosen as Teff = 4000 K, and the stellar luminosity L = 1 L; these values correspond to spectral type K7, a stellar mass of M = 0.7 M and an age of about 1.6 Myrs.
