Abstract : An analysis of solar velocity data obtained at the Stanford Solar Observatory shows the existence of solar global oscillations in the range 45 to 105 microHz (160 to 370 minutes). These oscillations are interpreted as internal gravity modes of degree l = 1 and l = 2. A good estimate of the order of the modes has also been made. (Author)
