Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


We discuss recent observational, theoretical and modeling progress made in understanding the Sun’s internal dynamics, including its rotation, meridional flow, convection and overshoot. Over the past few decades, substantial theoretical and observational effort has gone into appreciating these aspects of solar dynamics. A review of these observations, related helioseismic methodology and inference and computational results in relation to these problems is undertaken here.
