The Environments of Cool Stars

Robert E. Stencel
1988 International Astronomical Union Colloquium  
AbstractThis review describes recent conclusions about the physical environment of red giant and supergiant stars. This includes coronae, chromospheres, dust formation and stellar winds. This knowledge can provide the boundary conditions for considering what role such objects play as members of binary star systems, where tidal forces and companion behavior alter observed characteristics.
