Continuum and layer-resolved calculations are used to investigate the spin structure in the vicinity of grain boundaries. Reduced exchange in the grain-boundary region gives rise to a quasi-discontinuity of the magnetization and yields a perturbation which decays exponentially inside the grains. An effective intergranular exchange is obtained as a micromagnetically well-defined function of the grain-boundary exchange, and it is discussed how grain boundaries affect the hysteresis loops of nanostructures
