Abstract : Research is described as a progress report on the construction of a non-gray model atmosphere for the K2IIIp giant Arcturus including the effects of line blanketing. The report covers: (a) a description of preliminary model atmosphere construction and outline of further analysis which will lead to final model; (b) a report on the analysis of infrared spectrograms of Arcturus (12,000-25,000A) furnished by Drs. P. and J. Connes, and obtained by Fourier transform spectroscopy; and, (c) a report on the analysis of unpublished photometric atlas of Arcturus (3500-12,000A) furnished by Drs. R. and R. Griffin.
