Abstract

It is important to understand the limits and accuracy of helioseismic techniques in their ability to probe the solar interior. The availability of a method that is able to compute the solar acoustic wave field in the presence of thermal or flow perturbations affords us a means to place bounds on detectability and accuracy of inferences of interior perturbations. We describe the technique used to simulate wave propagation within a spherical shell that extends from a desired depth (not including the center) into the solar atmosphere and which possesses a solar like stratification.
