- Leptocline
- Transition zone between Convective Zone and Photosphere
- For a long time, neglected zone due to its small mass and its physical complexity
- Important for a better understanding of the solar machine and in particular the solar cycle dynamics
- Potential origin of the solar radius variation observed at the surface
- Emergence of energetic phenomena at the Sun’s surface => solar forcing and space weather

Part I: Inversion of f-modes

- Oscillation modes 3 numbers l, n, m
f-modes : n = 0 => surface wave

- Idea : compute the position of the subsurface layers by using the f-modes sensitive to the subsurface
Evolution of the stratification with depth?

Origin of the variation of the solar radius?

Part III: A look at the asphericities

Lefebvre et al., 2004, 2006

Getting ready for PICARD helioseismology program - Nice

- Evolution of the even-a coefficients of f-modes (a2n)
- Influence of the turbulente pressure, the temperature and the magnetic field, which could be significative when looking at asphericties
- Study of the k coefficients:
- Comparison with the work of Dziembowski & Goode (2004) and their theoretical k computed from a variation of the turbulent pressure, the temperature or the magnetic field during the cycle (expression of integrals and kernels are given)

Pb1 : discrepancies for f modes with l>300

Pb2 : each mode has its own radius Rf

- Antia et al. 2000, Dziembowski et al. 2001, 2004, 2005
Rf et f are determined by a least-square fitting over frequencies

Il is the inertia momentum

l is linked to surface term

- Confirmation of cyclic variations of the solar seismic radius:
- Confined in the more external layers of the Sun (Antia & Basu 2004; Dziembowski & Goode 2005).

- Double-structure layer:
- First part between 0.97 Ro et 0.99 Ro in phase with activity;
- Second part above 0.99 Ro in antiphase;
- Similar layer put in evidence by Godier & Rozelot (2001)

- Seismic radius variations at the surface in antiphase with the cycle.
- Asphericities: preliminary results
- variation of <k>
- possible influence of the turbulent pressure and/or the temperature over the cycle

- variation of <a2k/>
- amplitude of the relative variation of a2k 10x amplitude for the mean frequency
- different behavior for the variation of a2,a4 and a6 according the degree l, so according the depth

- variation of <k>
