[33.14] The XSPEC/Cloudy Connection - Plasma simulations of x-ray emission and absorption

Gary Ferland (Univ of Kentucky), Keith Arnaud (NASA Goddard/Univ of Maryland)

We have developed an interface between the x-ray spectral reduction package XSPEC and the plasma simulation code Cloudy. We describe the types of emission and absorption models that can be fitted to observations and give an overview of the uncertainties inherent in the plasma calculations. We encourage feedback from the community to guide us on the types of models that will be fitted to future observations.
