The tachocline at the base of the convection zone is generally believed to be the seat of the solar dynamo. Here we investigate whether the tachocline shows any detectable change using several 72 day time-series of the Michelson Doppler Imager (MDI) Medium-l data. We do not find any clear evidence of change with time.
