Validation of Spherical Born Approximation Sensitivity Functions for Measuring Deep Solar Meridional Flow

Author: Vincent Böning
Accurate measurements of deep solar meridional flow are of vital interest for understanding the solar dynamo. In this paper, we validate a recently developed method for obtaining sensitivity functions (kernels) for travel-time mea ... more

Sensitivity Kernels for Flows in Time-Distance Helioseismology: Extension to Spherical Geometry

Author: Vincent Böning
We extend an existing Born approximation method for calculating the linear sensitivity of helioseismic travel times to flows from Cartesian to spherical geometry. This development is necessary for using the Born approximation for ... more

Inversions for Deep Solar Meridional Flow Using Spherical Born Kernels

Author: Vincent Böning
The solar meridional flow is a crucial ingredient in modern dynamo theory. Seismic estimates of this flow have, however, been contradictory in deeper layers below about $0.9\,R_\odot$. Results from time-distance helioseismology h ... more

Design of a next generation synoptic solar observing network: solar physics research integrated network group (SPRING)

Author: Markus Roth
Long-term synoptic observations of the Sun in different wavelength regions are essential to understand its secular behavior. Such observations have proven very important for discovery of 11 year solar activity cycle, 22 year magne ... more
