Abstract: 2.5D MHD simulations of CMEs and flares are combined with improved accuracy density sensitive line emission contribution functions from the ADAS database to study profiles of spectral lines which will fall within the wavelength range of the Solar-B Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Spectrometer (EIS). The objective is to study the signatures of magnetic reconnection associated flow phenomena in the line profiles and provide a set of recommended lines for EIS observations planning. Here, we illustrate our methods by considering the profile of the well-known Fe XII 195 Å line and its ability to detect reconnection inflows. We also discuss the effects of altering simulation parameters such as electron temperature and the inclusion of the effect of heat conduction. The table of recommended lines following these methods is being prepared and will be presented in a separate paper.
