(Abridged) We use optical spectroscopy to investigate the disk, wind, and accretion during the 2008 ZCMa NW outburst. Over 1000 optical emission lines reveal accretion, a variable, multi-component wind, and double-peaked lines of disk origin. The variable, non-axisymmetric, accretion-powered wind has slow ($\sim $0 km s$^{-1}$), intermediate ($\sim -$100 km s$^{-1}$) and fast ($\geq -$400 km s$^{-1}$) components. The fast components are of stellar origin and disappear in quiescence, while the… Expand

A Study of the Photometric and Spectroscopic Variations of the Prototypical FU Orionis–type Star V1057 Cyg
Among the low-mass pre-main sequence stars, a small group called FU Orionis–type objects (FUors) are notable for undergoing powerful accretion outbursts. V1057 Cyg, a classical example of an FUor,Expand


Wind-dominated optical line emission from accretion disks around luminous cataclysmic variable stars
CATACLYSMIC variable stars are thought to consist of a low-mass star orbiting a more massive white-dwarf primary star. Gas from the secondary star flows onto the white dwarf by way of an accretionExpand
An Inner Gaseous Disk around the Herbig Be Star MWC 147
We present high spectral resolution, optical spectra of the Herbig Be star MWC 147, in which we spectrally resolve several emission lines, including the [O I] lines at 6300 and 6363 A. Their highlyExpand
Photoionization Models for the Inner Gaseous Disks of Herbig Be Stars: Evidence Against Magnetospheric Accretion?
We investigate the physical properties of the inner gaseous disks of the three, hot, Herbig B2e stars, HD 76534, HD 114981 and HD 216629, by modelling CFHT-ESPaDOns spectra using non-LTE radiativeExpand
Investigating the origin of hot gas lines in Herbig Ae/Be Stars
We analyze high-resolution UV spectra of a small sample of Herbig Ae/Be stars (HAEBES) in order to explore the origin of the $T\sim10^5$ K gas in these stars. The C IV 1548,1550 \AA\ lineExpand
Sub-0.1" optical imaging of the Z CMa jets with SPHERE/ZIMPOL
Crucial information on the mass accretion-ejection in young stars can be obtained from high spatial resolution images of jets in sources with recurrent accretion outbursts. Using the SPHERE/ZIMPOLExpand
Balmer Line Emission Profiles from Cataclysmic Variable Accretion Disk Chromospheres
Stark-broadened, emisson-line profiles are computed for physical conditions extant in the chromospheres of cataclysmic variable accretion disks. These calculations follow the methods of Lin,Expand
Accretion in Evolved and Transitional Disks in CEP OB2: Looking for the Origin of the Inner Holes
We present accretion rates for a large number of solar-type stars in the Cep OB2 region, based on U-band observations. Our study comprises 95 members of the {approx}4 Myr old cluster Tr 37 (includingExpand
Disk Winds and Disk Emission Lines
We show that a thin disk illuminated by a central source will produce single-peaked broad emission lines if there is a wind emerging from the disk. Line-driven winds in active galactic nuclei and inExpand
The periodic spectroscopic variability of FU Orionis
FU Orionis systems are young stars undergoing outbursts of disc accretion and where the optical spectrum contains lines associated with both the di sc photosphere and a wind component. PreviousExpand
[O I] 6300 Å emission in Herbig Ae/Be systems: Signature of Keplerian rotation
We present high spectral-resolution optical spectra of 49 Herbig Ae/Be stars in a search for the [OI] 6300 A line. The vast majority of the stars in our sample show narrow (FWHM < 100 km s -1 )Expand
