Data from 1979 solar differential radius observations (Bos 1982) has been analyzed for evidence of intermediate-degree f-modes. A set of 18 intermediate-degree f-mode multiplets has been identified and classified based on more than 300 classified modes of oscillation. The degree of the multiplets ranged from 19 to 36. The detection and classification of these modes have been confirmed by testing the horizontal spatial properties of the eigenfunctions. The m = 0 eigenfrequency spectrum was found to be on the average - 10 μHz greater than that predicted by the standard solar model of Saio (1982). Rotational splitting effects up to fifth order in m were obtained.
