What type of meaningful scientific contributions could one make with the assistance of a spectroscope?

Our French colleagues host this site, it has several links to various spec projects.

Right now I think Nova Del 2013 is the best observed ever with spectroscopy. High cadence and a good global coverage is the amateur’s advantage here.

The ARAS group as Ed mention and also the German "Vereinigung der Sternfreunde Fachgruppe Spektroskopie" do a lot of science.
