Global solar oscillations have been shown to be primarily observable through changes in the solar limb darkening function. The observational search for these changes is hampered by problems associated with changes in the earth's atmosphere. Attempts by several investigators to deal with these problems are reviewed and the results are reproduced from the most successful of these. The pros and cons of the various techniques used in these observations are brought into focus by an analysis of their individual ability to deal with the earth's atmosphere.
