  • Using a very detailed simulation chain to calculate the cosmic ray background flux, we propose most convenient places and estimate the exposure time of a muon telescope to study active Colombia volcanoes. We design and implement a simple criterion to study a dozen of active Colombia volcanoes and determined which is workable. Our simulation chain considers three important factors with different spatial and time scales: the geomagnetic effects, the development of the extensive air showers in the… CONTINUE READING
