[4.02] Results from the MDI Instrument

J. Schou (Stanford U.)

Using data from the MDI instrument on the SOHO satellite we have been able to infer details in the structure and dynamics of the solar interior which were not observed before.

Here I will discuss some of the highlights of what we have learned so far, such as details of the near surface rotation rate and the structure and rotation rate in the convection zone and below.

I will also discuss some of the results obtained about the near surface layers using local area helioseismology.

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