JN - Serbian Astronomical Journal PY - 2005 IS - 170 SP - 115 EP - 121 PT- Article AB- We observed the MnI 539.47 nm and 542.04nm line profiles in the quiet photosphere and plage regions in 1998 and 2001, and measured the full widths at half maximum, equivalent widths and depths of these profiles. The relative changes of the MnI 539.47 nm line parameters, normalized to the values obtained for quiet photosphere, as a function of magnetic field strength in plages is analyzed. We found, for plage region observed in 1998, that both the equivalent width and the depth of the line profile decrease with increasing strength of magnetic filed in plage at a rate of 9x10−4 /Gauss, but the full width at half maximum does not show any significant regular changes. Based on these results, the variations of the MnI 539.47 nm spectral line in solar flux with activity cycle could be explained by the variation of solar surface coverage with plages. For observations in 2001, the equivalent width and the depth of this line profile also decrease with increasing strength of magnetic filed in plage, but there are significant differences in the behavior of line parameters in comparison with the 1998 values. Comparison of changes of the MnI 539.47 nm line parameters with the parameters of the MnI 542.04 nm line in 1998 shows a clear discrepancy between them. On the contrary, in 2001 the full widths at half maximum and the equivalent widths of these two lines behaved in a similar fashion. .
