20 Inside-Out or Outside-In outburst? The only way to be sure of the outburst type is from eclipse profile observations during outbursts and BZ UMa is not an eclipsed system. The only way to be sure of the outburst type is from eclipse profile observations during outbursts and BZ UMa is not an eclipsed system. A very low mass-transfer rate for BZ UMa (≤10 15 g/s) implies that theoretically, its outbursts should be of an inside-out type.

24 Summary We reported simultaneous photometric and echelle- spectroscopic observations of the dwarf nova BZ UMa during which we were lucky to catch the system at the onset of an outburst. We reported simultaneous photometric and echelle- spectroscopic observations of the dwarf nova BZ UMa during which we were lucky to catch the system at the onset of an outburst. Using Doppler tomography we found that the unusual emission distribution detected in quiescence held during the outburst. Using Doppler tomography we found that the unusual emission distribution detected in quiescence held during the outburst. On the base of the spectral changes during the rising stage we conclude that the 2005 January outburst of BZ UMa was of the inside-out type. On the base of the spectral changes during the rising stage we conclude that the 2005 January outburst of BZ UMa was of the inside-out type. Nevertheless, a highly asymmetrical light curve with a “jump” shows that this outburst cannot easily be fit into the framework of the current Disc Instability Model.
