Solar spectral lines are observed to be broader and stronger than expected from purely thermal and pressure broadening. Classically, the broadening and strengthening are attributed to a macro- and microvelocity field. Such separation of the motions, however, does not take into account the physical nature of the turbulence and has a formal character.
