Doppler imaging of stellar surface structure. IX. A high-resolution image of the weak-lined T Tauri star HDE 283572 = V987 Tauri.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present a Doppler image of the T Tauri star HDE 283572 from a set of high-quality spectroscopic line profiles and simultaneous multicolor photometry from October 1997. Additional photometry throughout the entire observing season was obtained with a robotic telescope and is used to determine the precise photometric period of 1.5495±0.0002 days that we interpret to be the stellar rotation period. Further relevant astrophysical parameters like mass, luminosity, radius, effective temperature, gravity, and elemental abundances are obtained and discussed. HDE 283572 shows one of the largest and coolest polar spots ever observed and confirms an earlier map by Joncour et al. from Pic-du-Midi data. We also compare our map with predicted magnetic flux-tube distributions from MHD simulations and suggest that the polar spot on HDE 283572 was possibly created by a strong poleward meridional flow.
