7 Summary of Current Knowledge and Issues

This long tour of the main observational, theoretical and numerical results on the problem of supergranulation being completed, we are now in a position to provide hurried (as well as less hurried) readers with a synthetic presentation of what has been learned so far on the supergranulation phenomenon and what are the current issues. The presentation of a more personal outlook and suggestions for future research is deferred to Section 8.
