Abstract

Throughout its eighteen years of operation, the International Ultraviolet Explorer has afforded us the opportunity to make many new discoveries regarding the nature of the outer atmospheres of magnetically active, late-type stars. High-resolution spectra obtained continuously throughout the rotational cycle of rapidly-rotating stars have been used to map the spatial structure of the magnetic active regions in stellar chromospheres. The RS CVn-type binary system AR Lacertae has been observed intensively at 3 epochs, with additional observations with less complete phase coverage was obtained at 4 other epochs. Taken together, we are able to probe the evolution of atmospheric structure of AR Lac over a 13-year timeline. I briefly review techniques of chromospheric emission line mapping, and I summarize the IUE results for AR Lac, V711 Tau, EI Eri, V1794 Cyg, and TY Pyx. I conclude with a description of chromospheric imaging programs (present and future) that make use of the Hubble Space Telescope.
