Abstract (from CDS):

Aims. To investigate the inner regions of protoplanetary discs, we performed near-infrared interferometric observations of the classical T Tauri binary system S CrA.
Methods. We present the first VLTI-GRAVITY high spectral resolution (R ∼ 4000) observations of a classical T Tauri binary, S CrA (composed of S CrA N and S CrA S and separated by ∼1.4), combining the four 8m telescopes in dual-field mode.
Results. Our observations in the near-infrared K-band continuum reveal a disc around each binary component, with similar half-flux radii of about 0.1 au at d∼130pc, inclinations (i=28±3° and i=22±6°), and position angles (PA=0°±6° and PA=-2°±12°), suggesting that they formed from the fragmentation of a common disc. The S CrA N spectrum shows bright HeI and Brγ line emission exhibiting inverse P Cygni profiles, typically associated with infalling gas. The continuum-compensated Brγ line visibilities of S CrA N show the presence of a compact Brγ emitting region whose radius is about ∼0.06 au, which is twice as big as the truncation radius. This component is mostly tracing a wind. Moreover, a slight radius change between the blue- and red-shifted Brγ line components is marginally detected.
Conclusions. The presence of an inverse P Cygni profile in the HeI and Brγ lines, along with the tentative detection of a slightly larger size of the blue-shifted Brγ line component, hint at the simultaneous presence of a wind and magnetospheric accretion in S CrA N.
