Helio- and asteroseismology examine the inner of the solar and different stars, through observations of oscillations on their surfaces. The final 10 years within the research of the sunlight inside, to a has witnessed a really swift evolution element the place we will now examine investigating the actual country of subject, or the main points of rotation and different large-scale movement, within the solar. The stellar stories are in a few respects on the aspect of the sun reviews 10 years in the past, yet look poised to take off. therefore the time was once deemed ripe for lAO Symposium No 123, to evaluate the current prestige of this paintings, and plan for its destiny improvement. except the seismic facts, few observations can be found to supply information regarding stellar interiors. designated reviews, through spectral research, will be made up of stellar floor homes, together with atmospheric temperature and chemical composition. besides the fact that, the stellar radiative spectrum is nearly solely fastened through the mass, luminosity, radius and floor rotation of the celebrity, and comprises primarily no different information regarding the internal. a tremendous attempt of stellar evolution thought is supplied via observations of stel­ lar clusters, whose participants can kind of be assumed to have an identical age and chemical composition. the site of such stars in a HR diagram, the place luminosity is plotted opposed to the potent temperature, can approximately be understood by way of stellar evolution calculations.

A. e ABSTRACT. Spectra of solar intensity oscillations in the degree range = 20-98 were obtained with a 92% duty cycle over a 50 hour period from the geographic South Pole. After correction for solar rotation, the spectra have been averaged over azimuthal order m and fit with Lorentzian functions to provide values of background noise, amplitude, frequency and line width for 636 oscillation modes.

Figure 2. The quantity dF /dw is shown as a function of w, the angular velocity, times the solar radius. These data are the observational basis for a determination of internal sound speed. 4.

SEVERNY ET AL. isk" velocity measurements than for the differential method, we compared the PS of atmospheric pressure with the results of Grec et ale (1980), see Figure 4. Though there is no absolute coincidence of the individual frequencies, the overall structure of the frequencies forces us to suspect that the problem of atmospheric pressure fluctuations needs thorough investigation in future (see also Yerle's (1986) discussion of the atmospheric influences on observations of solar oscillations).
