Frequency splittings from GONG and MDI data over the last 6 years are used to study the temporal and latitudinal variations in the properties of the tachocline. In particular, we study changes in the position and the width of the tachocline. We find good evidence for latitudinal variations, but only marginal evidence for any temporal variation. The position of the tachocline at high latitudes may be varying slightly with time.
