The Sun as a well-defined neutrino source provides extremely important opportunities to investigate nontrivial neutrino properties such as nonzero mass, flavor mixing, neutrino oscillations, and MSW effect. The solar neutrino flux is energetically broadband, free of flavor backgrounds, and passes through quantities of matter obviously unavailable to terrestrial experiments. In this talk, after an introduction to solar neutrino phenomenology, I will describe the key features of solar neutrino experiments and I will summarize results and implicatiosn about solar neutrino detection and oscillations.
