Global model of differential rotation in the Sun

Abstract:

The isorotation contours of the solar convective zone (SCZ) show three distinct morphologies, corresponding to two boundary layers (inner and outer), and the bulk of the interior. Previous work has shown that the thermal wind equation (TWE) together with informal arguments on the nature of convection in a rotating fluid could be used to deduce the shape of the isorotation surfaces in the bulk of the SCZ with great fidelity, and that the tachocline contours could also be described by relativel...
