(Received 26 March 2002 / Accepted 10 July 2002)

With the GOLF instrument onboard the SoHO observatory, 1979 days of full-disc Doppler velocity observations have been compiled into a study of p-mode properties. We develop a multi-step iterative method (MSIM) algorithm to access all p-mode parameters while minimizing any perturbating effect or cross-talk between parameters during their determination. We present frequency and splitting tables, amplitudes, linewidths, line asymmetries, pseudo-modes, and background noise determinations. We have a first look at the changes induced by the transition from the low-activity to the high-activity part of solar cycle 23: we have recorded frequency shifts with a downturn at 3.7 mHz followed by a possible higher upturn, and linewidth changes to a good accuracy. We detect an effect on the noise background at 3 mHz possibly related to an interaction between noise and the modes and connected to the asymmetry of the profiles.

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see http://www.openly.com/openurlref/). You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
