Abstract
We extend an existing Born approximation model for calculating the linear sensitivity of helioseismic travel-times to flows from Cartesian to spherical geometry. This development is necessary to use the Born approximation for inferring large-scale flows in the deep solar interior. Two consistency tests show that results for our sensitivity kernels agree with reference values to within a few percent. Consequently, we evaluate the impact of different data analysis filters on the kernels for a meridional travel-distance of 42 degrees. When mainly low-degree modes are used (roughly l < 70), the sensitivity is concentrated in deeper regions and it visually best resembles a ray-path like structure, otherwise the sensitivity is concentrated near the surface. Among the different low-degree filters used, we find the phase-speed filtered kernel to be best localized at depth.
