Abstract (from CDS):

We present new spectropolarimetric observations of the weak-field magnetic white dwarf WD 0009+501. From these data we estimate that the star's longitudinal magnetic field varies with the rotation phase from about -120kG to about +50kG, and that the surface magnetic field varies from about 150kG to about 300kG. Earlier estimates of the stellar rotation period are revised anew, and we find that the most probable period is about 8h. We have attempted to recover the star's magnetic morphology by modelling the available magnetic observables, assuming that the field is described by the superposition of a dipole and a quadrupole. According to the best-fit model, the inclination of the rotation axis with respect to the line of sight is i=60°±20°, and the angle between the rotation axis and the dipolar axis is β= 111°±17°. The dipole strength at the pole is about 340kG, and the quadrupolar strength is about 300kG.
