Advances in Global and Local Helioseismology: an Introductory ReviewAdvances in Global and Local Helioseismology: an Introductory Review
by Alexander G. Kosovichev - arXiv , 2011
Helioseismology studies the structure and dynamics of the Sun's interior by observing oscillations on the surface. The basic principles, recent advances and perspectives of global and local helioseismology are reviewed in this text.
The Solar Magnetic FieldThe Solar Magnetic Field
by Sami Solanki, Bernd Inhester, Manfred Schussler - arXiv , 2010
Here we describe the magnetic field from the convection zone, where it is built up by the solar dynamo, to the solar surface, where it manifests itself in the form of sunspots and faculae, and beyond into the solar atmosphere and heliosphere.
