Calculations were carried out in order to probe the influence of turbulence on the solar oscillation frequencies as a possible explanation of the difference between observed and computed mode frequencies. As a first step the analysis is restricted to the radial oscillation modes. Corrections to the oscillation equations due to turbulence are determined with the help of perturbation theory, and the influence on the solar mixing length model is tested by recalculating the solar convection zone. The first interesting result is that the first order corrections in
the oscillation equations arising from the Reynolds stress do not
simply produce a For the turbulent modifications of the speed of sound (i.e., the
correlation of density and temperature fluctuations), that were
predicted as
