|Meridional circulation has become a key element in the solar dynamo flux transport models. Available helioseismic observations from several instruments (Taiwan Oscillation Network, Global Oscillation Network Group and Michelson Doppler Imager) have made possible a continuous monitoring of the solar meridional flow in the subphotospheric layers for more than a solar cycle.|
Here we discuss the implications of these observations for the current flux transport models.
