[9.03] Solar Internal Rotation From SOHO and Ground Based Helioseismology Experiments

J. Schou (Stanford)

With the quality of the data from the helioseismology instruments on SOHO and from ground based instruments we have begun to see intriguing details in the solar rotation rate that could not be detected before.

In this talk I will briefly discuss some of the highlights of what we have learned so far, such as details of the near surface rotation rate, the properties of the tachocline at the bottom of the convection zone and the rotation of the solar core.

The MDI project is supported by NASA contract NAG5-3077 at Stanford University.
