We present results from the 1996 Multi-Site Continuous Spectroscopy (MUSICOS) campaign on the T Tauri star SU Aurigae. We find a 2.7-d periodicity in the HeI (587.6 nm) line, and somewhat longer, less well-pronounced periodicities in the Balmer lines and in Na D. Our observations support the suggestion that the wind and infall signatures are out of phase on SU Aur. We present Doppler images of SU Aur that have been obtained from least-squares deconvolved profiles. Images taken about one rotation apart show only limited overlap, in particular at low latitudes. This is due in part to limitations in signal-to-noise ratio, and in part to line-profile deformations that arise from short-lived and/or non-surface features. The agreement at high latitudes is better and suggests that at least some longer-lived features are present. The analysis of Stokes V profiles yields a marginal magnetic field detection during one of the phases.
