Doppler imaging of the active star PW And

Abstract

We present spot activity of the K2V pre-main-sequence star PW And based on the high-resolution spectroscopic data obtained at Xinglong station and BOAO in 2005 November and December. Using the Least-Squares Deconvolution method, we have derived time series of composite profiles of PW And with high signal to noise ratio. These have been used to reconstruct its starspot pattern via the Doppler imaging method. The result shows that intermediate to high-latitude spots are the dominant features and weak low-latitude spots also appear. Comparing Doppler images from two data subsets, it can be found that almost no difference between two images exists except the small position evolution of weak low-latitude spots, which suggests that the intermediate to high-latitude spots have longer lifetimes than one month, and the low-latitude spots have shorter lifetimes.
