The presence in the far-UV spectra of early-type stars of spectral lines of superionized atoms is argument of controversial debate among astronomers. Presently there is agreement on the non-radiative origin of these ions but not on the proposed mechanisms for their production nor on the proposed locations in the stellar atmosphere where they are abundant. Cassinelli et al. (1978) suggest that the Auger mechanism is operative in a cool wind blowing above a narrow corona to produce these ions;doi:10.1017/s0074180900148788 fatcat:6kvrwtlumjgx5mekedpckkep7u
