The behavior of random band models composed of lines of pure Doppler shape for several irradiance distribution functions is investigated. The particular irradiance distribution functions chosen are: (1) constant irradiance, (2) exponential distribution, (3) truncated <i>S</i><sup>-1</sup> distribution, and (4) the exponential-tailed <i>S</i><sup>-1</sup> distribution. The curves of growth for the first two models are found to have the asymptotic (log) ½behavior characteristic of an isolated Doppler line while the latter two models show a (log)½ dependence.
