Abstract. Helioseismology, the study of solar oscillations, has proved to be an extremely powerful tool for the investigation of the internal structure and dynamics of the Sun. Here I will review the present status of helioseismic studies and comment on recent results and on prospects for future investigations to solve the most discussed open questions associated with solar structure modelling.
