The Giant planets in our solar system are fascinating objects and investigation of their structure is a problem of fundamental scientific interest. Using the improved set of gravitational moments provided by the Voyager, new models have been developed for the distant planets Uranus and Neptune [1]. The two planets are believed to have very similar structure. Fig.1 shows a crossectional view of Neptune based on such models and it is seen that it has an atmosphere of hydrogen and helium while its surface consists of a thick layer of ice which has a temperature of 5000 K, a pressure of 3 Mbar and a density of about 4. g/cm3 Neptun 8000 k
