Fuse studies of dwarf novae during quiescence.

We have obtained FUSE spectra of several dwarf novae which reveal the properties of their accreting whitedwarfs, their rates of accretion during quiescence and the nature of their boundary layer/inner disk regionsincluding accretion belts on the white dwarfs. Among the systems for which preliminary results will be presented are BV Cen, WW Ceti, EY Cyg, SS Aur and VW Hyi. The contribution of these FUSE studies to ourunderstanding of disk accretion physics will be emphasized within the context of the white dwarf and boundary layer.
