The tachocline and differential rotation in the Sun

Abstract:

In this paper, we present a model for the effects of the tachocline on the differential rotation in the solar convection zone. The mathematical technique relies on the assumption that entropy is nearly constant ('well mixed') in isorotation surfaces both outside and within the tachocline. The resulting solutions exhibit non-trivial features that strikingly resemble the true tachocline isorotation contours in unexpected detail. This strengthens the mathematical premises of the theory. The obse...
