Dr. Baliunas has manuscripts in preparation no coauthors in the area of Ca II chromospheric surface magnetic activity and variability in F-G dwarfs and subgiants in M67.
I worked with Sallie Baliunas, a CfA scientist who was a fellow Villanova astronomy grad, and was running an ambitious project to track chromospheric activity on a large sample of Sun-like stars.
Lockyer used a technique devised independently by himself and by the French astronomer Pierre Jules CÃ©sar Janssen to observe the chromospheric spectrum outside of an eclipse.
The British astronomer Joseph Norman Lockyer gives the first documented account Lockyer 1869a,b,c of a hitherto unknown bright chromospheric yellow line which was later known to have been produced by helium.
If the image of the solar disc is hidden by a screen of exactly the proper size, the slits may be made to sweep over the whole sun, thus giving us at one exposure a picture of the chromospheric ring round the sun's limb with its prominences.

Thus, the virtual discovery of the solar appendages, both coronal and chromospheric, may be said to have been begun in 1842, and completed in
The identification cleared up many obscurities in chromospheric chemistry.
Nevertheless, most of the bright lines recorded as coronal  were really due, there can be no doubt, to diffused chromospheric light.
