Abstract

We describe a new generation of standard solar models (SSMs), Barcelona 2016 or B16 for short, that includes recent updates on some important nuclear reaction rates, a more consistent treatment of the equation of state and a novel and flexible treatment of opacity uncertainties. Two large sets of SSMs, each based on a different canonical set of solar abundances with high and low metallicity, are calculated and compared with different ensembles of solar observables including solar neutrinos, surface helium abundance, depth of convective envelope and sound speed profile.
