Dynamics of the Solar Interior

PDE and Applied Math Seminar

Speaker: Pascale Garaud, UCSC
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Thu, Apr 10 2008, 11:00AM

The dynamics of fluids deep in the solar interior can be observed by the means of helioseismology. The exquisite data acquired in the past 30 years presents us with many opportunities to test our understanding of the dynamics of both stably and unstably stratified rotating fluids. This talk will present a general overview of the current state of the field both observationally and theoretically.
