Abstract

We have obtained high resolution spectra of the pre-main sequence binary system KH 15D (V582 Mon) while the star is fully visible, fully occulted, and during several ingress and egress events over the course of five contiguous observing seasons. The Hα line profile is a standard probe of the magnetospheric accretion flows on young stars such as KH 15D. We use these time series data to map out the size of the magnetosphere and find that it changes size from one observing season to the next.
