The IUE Observations Of W UMa

  • S.M. Rucinski (a1), J.E. Pringle (a2) and J.A.J. Whelan (a2)

Abstract

The low resolution, phase averaged SWP spectra reveal the trend of increased transition-region line intensities for higher temperatures of ion formation which was previously observed for other active systems. Two series of low resolution LWR spectra covering two full orbital periods have been used to check the photometric results from the ANS satellite and a good agreement is found for the 2200 Å band. Wavelength shifts and changes in the intensity of the blended Mg II emission feature are not inconsistent with the ANS result that the more massive component is the more active one in the W UMa system.
