We present the g-mode oscillation for a set of modern solar models. Each solar model is based on a single modification or improvement to the physics of a reference solar model. Improvements were made to the nuclear reaction rates, the equation of state, the opacities, and the treatment of the atmosphere. We estimate the error in the predicted g-mode periods associated with the uncertainties in the model physics and describe the specific sensitivities of the g-mode periods and their period spacings to the different model structures. In addition, we compare our models to a sample of published observations. We find remarkably good agreement between our "best" solar model and the observations of Hill & Gu.
