Abstract

We demonstrate the power of the local correlation tracking technique on stellar data for the first time. We recover the spot migration pattern of the long-period RS CVn-type binary σ Gem from a set of six Doppler images from 3.6 consecutive rotation cycles. The resulting surface flow map suggests a weak anti-solar differential rotation with α ≈ -0.0022 ± 0.0016, and a coherent poleward spot migration with an average velocity of 220 ± 10 ms-1. This result agrees with our recent findings from another study and could also be confirmed theoretically.
