Picture of the Month

The magnetic topology in umbral dots has been studied by means of the inversion

of spectropolarimetric data recorded with the Hinode satellite and the GREGOR

solar telescope. The SP instrument attached to the 0.5-meter SOT telescope

on-board the Hinode satellite records spectropolarimetric data of two Fe I

lines at 630 nm, which are formed about 60-80 km higher than the three Fe I

lines at 1565 nm observed with the GRIS instrument attached to the 1.5-meter

ground solar telescope GREGOR.
