Abstract. We show that the flux distribution of a wind from a
cool star differs considerably from what is predicted by the the­
ory for mass loss from hot stars. The differences are caused by
the facts that 1) the mass loss rates are lower, resulting in smaller
optical depths in the wind, and 2) for winds from cool stars the
temperature of the wind is higher than the temperature of the star
while for winds from hot stars the reverse holds. These differ­
