I'm reading some literature on mass loss in the RGB/AGB branches and so far I'm getting a lot of information regarding mass loss via dusty-winds/pulsations but almost no explanation of mass loss by 'chromosphere activity'. I asked my mentor about it and he couldn't come up with anything so I'm turning to whomever might be able to throw a few references or explanations my way.

Perhaps this PDF can help: maths.tcd.ie/~gharper/pubs/cs15_splinter.pdf? –  Kyle Kanos Jun 29 '13 at 11:20
That was a good write-up, but they didn't dive into the chromosphere aspect like I was hoping for. Thanks for the link. –  Matt Jun 29 '13 at 20:13
Oh well. My next suggestion would be to find a review article (i.e., ARAA) about mass-loss in stars and see what they say or cite there . –  Kyle Kanos Jun 29 '13 at 22:32
