Updated solar frequency splitting measurements suggest a slight decrease of the rotation rate below 0.25 Rsolar and, albeit preliminary, rule out a core rotating faster than the upper radiative zone. The estimates of the rotation rate of the deep solar layers are based on new rotational frequency splittings computed using data from the GOLF and MDI instruments on board SoHO. Such results, provided they are confirmed after further analysis, give additional insight into the dynamics of the solar core.
