Fig. 2


Normalized cumulative polarization in terms of distance from the star. The figure applies when the polarization calculation is seperable (see text). In the case γ = 1, references lines show that half of the polarization will be determined within half a stellar radius above the atmosphere; 90% will be determined between one and 5.6 stellar radii.
