Summary
Abstract: The outer third of the Sun's radius is convectively
unstable. Turbulent motions from this region known as Penetrative
Turbulent Compressible Convection (PTCC) may penetrate into stable
layers below, mixing temperature, momentum and chemicals.The outer
third of the Sun's radius is convectively unstable. Very turbulent
motions from this zone may penetrate into stable ... View entire text
