Abstract:

Progress has been made toward solving the problem of the solar dynamo. The flux tube dynamo has been defined as a promising model for future investigation. Surface solar magnetic fields have been observed to determine whether electric currents carried by the fields can yield information about the dynamo region. Observational tools have been developed to probe the internal solar magnetic fields.
