[1] Cosmic rays (CRs) data observed through four neutron monitors and one muon telescope are used to study the solar diurnal variation (DV) from to The median primary rigidity of response, (R m), for these detectors encompasses the range 16 ≤ R m ≤ 60 GV of the galactic CRs spectrum. The phase angle observed with the lower rigidity station depends strongly on the solar magnetic Cited by: 8. Flux Variation of Cosmic Muons Journal of the Arkansas Academy of Science, Vol. 65, 3 greatly reduces the chance that a large signal can be caused by an event other than the passage of an energetic muon.

Using a neutron detector to measure cosmic rays may sound odd, but this has been a common way to measure the level of cosmic ray levels since This is because if the primary cosmic ray that starts a cascade has an energy well over MeV, and so many of its secondary by-products will be neutrons that will reach ground where they can be detected.. These systems are commonly called. The discovery of a new cosmic ray modulation phenomenon is reported. Analysis of neutron monitor data has revealed that the difference in amplitude of the cosmic ray diurnal anisotropy for IMF sectors directed toward and away from the Sun displays a solar cycle variation.

Muon observations commenced many years before neutron monitors were constructed. Thus, muon data over a larger number of solar cycles is available to study solar modulation on anisotropies and other cosmic ray variations. The solar diurnal and semi-diurnal variations have been studied for many Cosmic Ray Neutron and Muon Monitor Diurnal Vectors book.

In this case, muon decays and the energy losses in the atmosphere cannot be neglected. Moreover, geomagnetic latitude and solar modulation now play an important role being the primary cosmic ray energy Ep muon flux measurements for the knowl-edge of the neutrino Size: KB.

The diurnal variation of cosmic ray flux canbe measured by neutron monitors. Neutron monitor is an instrument that measures the neutrons as the secondary cosmic rays on ground base. Neutron monitors have been collecting the data sinceduring half a century, to start detecting IGY type neutro n : Jongil Jung, Suyeon Oh, Yu Yi, Paul Evenson, Roger Pyle, Geonhwa Jee, Jeong-Han Kim, Changsup Lee.
