The Solar Magnetic Field
by Sami Solanki, Bernd Inhester, Manfred Schussler
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 83
The magnetic field of the Sun is the underlying cause of the many diverse phenomena combined under the heading of solar activity. Here we describe the magnetic field as it threads its way from the bottom of the convection zone, where it is built up by the solar dynamo, to the solar surface, where it manifests itself in the form of sunspots and faculae, and beyond into the outer solar atmosphere and, finally, into the heliosphere.

After reviewing the results of the last two decades, which were determinant to solve the long standing solar neutrino puzzle, we focus on the more recent results in this field and on the experiments presently running or planned for the near future.
