Introduction

Introduction

  • 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

Asphericities 1

Asphericities (1)

  • 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)

     Rf et f are determined by a least-square fitting over frequencies

Conclusions our results

Conclusions: our results

  • 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
