Abstract: The structure of stellar atmospheres is modified when they include embedded diverging magnetic fields. Diamagnetic Effects (DME) combined with gravity result in speed filters. These, in turn, modify the hydrostatic and thermal structure. Using numerical simulations of charged particle motion, we examine the relevant effects. The run of temperature and pressure is the result of the modified effective gravity for the faster particles of the thermal distribution.
