Abstract:AbstractFluxes of galactic cosmic rays (GCR) observed at 1 AU are modulated inside the heliosphere at different time scales. Here we study the properties of the power spectral density (PSD) of galactic cosmic ray variability using hourly data from 31 neutron monitors (NM) from 1953 to 2016. We pay particular attention to the reliability of the used datasets and methods. We present the overall PSD and discuss different parts of the spectrum and the related periodicities. We find significant spectral peaks at th… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
