The intense turbulence present in the solar convection zone is a major challenge to both theory and simulation as one tries to understand the origins of the striking differential rotation profile with radius and latitude that has been revealed by helioseismology. The differential rotation must be an essential element in the operation of the solar magnetic dynamo and its cycles of activity, yet there are many aspects of the interplay between convection, rotation and magnetic fields that are… CONTINUE READING
