Project GRAND, a proportional wire chamber array, is used to examine the increased counting rate of single muons during the solar Ground Level Event (GLE) of April 15, 2001. Data are presented and compared to our background rates and to that of neutron monitor stations. This GLE is seen with a statistical significance of 6.1 sigma.

Temporal Evolution of Solar Energetic Particle Spectra
During solar flares and coronal mass ejections, Solar Energetic Particles (SEPs) may be released into the interplanetary medium and near-Earth locations. The energy spectra of SEP events at 1 AU are
