Abstract: The magnetic field of the quiet-Sun chromosphere remains a mystery for solar physicists. The reduced number of chromospheric lines are intrinsically hard to model and only a few of them are magnetically sensitive. In this work, we use a 3D numerical simulation of the outer layers of the solar atmosphere, to asses the reliability of non-LTE inversions, in this case applied to the Ca II λ8542 Å line. We show that NLTE inversions provide realistic estimates of physical quantities from synthetic observations.
