The solar dynamo is important both due to the role of the Sun in our daily lives and as a prototype for understanding the generation of magnetic fields in astrophysics. Synoptic observations of the Sun now cover 4 solar cycles, including the strong cycles 21-23 and the weak cycle 24. These observations provide clues and constraints for the operation of the Solar dynamo. In this talk we will show how the observations constrain the most critical processes responsible for the generation of the large and small magnetic fields on the Sun.
