VETS Visualizations: Compressible Convection in an Ionizing Fluid
Entry ID:

Abstract: The Sun rings like a bell. By looking at the frequencies of this
ringing we can tell what the bell is made of. In the case of the Sun
we can tell the sound speed (temperature) of the gas, rotational
velocities, plus other properties, all as a function of depth. In
essence we can look inside the Sun by studying its vibrations. What is
