Scattering polarization tends to dominate the linear polarization signals of the Ca II 8542 A line in weakly magnetized areas (B ~ 100 G), especially when the observing geometry is close to the limb.

We consider the vector emissivity of the polarized radiation transfer in a Lambda-type atomic transition, which we recently proposed in order to account for both CRD and PRD contributions to the scattered radiation.
