5. Predicted Continuum Observations

The model predicts continuum fluxes (SED), images, and visibilities at various wavelengths. Figure 7 indicates the disc regions mainly responsible for the continuum emission at different wavelengths.

Figure 8 shows two examples of calculated images, one in the IR and one at mm- wavelengths. The spectral appearance at 3.8 μm is dominated by the inner rim, whereas the disc has an apparent size of about 50 AU at λ = 1.3 mm. Note that the scattering is treated as isotropic in this ProDiMo model, so the preferred forward scattering by the surface of the close disc half in the l.h.s. image is not properly accounted for by the model.
