[89.02] Inferring Inhomogeneous Structure in the Sun Directly from Correlations in the Seismic Signal

M. F. Woodard (Big Bear Solar Observatory/New Jersey Institute of Technology)

A program for probing inhomogeneous subsurface structure in the Sun based on the direct modeling of correlations in the seismic signal will be outlined and some preliminary results presented. The method has been applied , for instance, to the detection of subsurface supergranular-scale flow using helioseismology datasets from the Michelson Doppler Interferometer on the SOHO satellite. Strategies for studying flow fields on both larger and smaller size and time scales will be discussed. This effort is supported by NASA under grant NAG5-8485.
