Abstract: A spectroscopic campaign was carried out on the Narrow Line Seyfert 1 (NLS1) Galaxy WPVS 48 (2MASX J09594263-3112581) at the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) from December 2013 to June 2014. The final objective is to perform reverberation mapping on the acquired light curves in order to calculate the Black Hole (BH) mass and to characterise the Broad Line Region (BLR) of the galaxy. To date, the spectra of one third of the observations are reduced and intercalibrated. Therefore, we will provide spectra displaying the spectral variability of WPVS 48 and preliminary light curves of the continuum at λ 5100 Å, as well as the emission lines Hα, Hβ and HeII λ 4686.
