In local helioseismology numerical simulations of wave propagation are useful to model the interaction of solar waves with perturbations to a background solar model. However, the solution to the equations of motions include convective modes that can swamp the waves we are interested in. For this reason, we choose to first stabilise the background solar model against convection by altering the vertical pressure gradient. Here we compare the eigenmodes of our convectively stabilised model with a…

Constructing and Characterising Solar Structure Models for Computational Helioseismology

In local helioseismology, numerical simulations of wave propagation are useful to model the interaction of solar waves with perturbations to a background solar model. However, the solution to the

Constructing Semi-Empirical Sunspot Models for Helioseismology

One goal of helioseismology is to determine the subsurface structure of sunspots. In order to do so, it is important to understand first the near-surface effects of sunspots on solar waves, which are
