Cool stars winds and mass loss: Observations

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 497)


Observational evidences for mass loss from cool stars are reviewed. The emphasis is put on Asymptotic Giant Branch stars which contribute to ∼ 50% of the replenishment of the Interstellar Medium. The aim is to illustrate the richness of the informations provided by the observations obtained in the various wavelength ranges from the optical to the radio. A selection of on-going developments which are potentially important for this theme is presented.
