Evidence of large-scale structures in the atmosphere of the active K-dwarf component of V471 Tauri

The authors have analyzed contemporaneous IUE ultraviolet spectra and visible photoelectric data of the eclipsing binary V471 Tauri (K2 V+DA) between 1979 and 1985. The combined data detail the three-dimensional structure of atmospheric loops and their associated starspots on the K dwarf. The distri...
