Abstract

The dependence of theoretical eigenfrequencies of five minute oscillation modes on the parameters that determine model solar envelopes has been investigated. It was found that the p mode frequencies are quite strongly correlated with the depth of the convection zone. Comparison of theory with observation suggests that the solar convection zone is about 200,000 km deep.
