Abstract: Montgomery (2005) showed that the properties of a pulsating white dwarf's convection zone can be determined by fitting the observed lightcurves with model simulations. The Whole Earth Telescope (WET) and the Delaware Asteroseismic Research Center (DARC) are using this technique to map the properties of convection across the DA and DB instability strips. We present the current status of the project, including preliminary analysis of light curves and from recent WET campaigns.
