Abstract: The torsional oscillation pattern of migrating zonal flows is related to the solar activity cycle. In the approach to solar minimum, we compare the current flow profile with that seen at the previous minimum, using Global Oscillation Network Group (GONG) and Michelson Doppler Imager (MDI) data as well as Mount Wilson Doppler observations that reach further back in time. Will the flow pattern at the upcoming minimum match that for the previous one?
