High-energy solar particles, produced in association with solar flares and coronal mass ejections, occasionally bombard the Earth’s atmosphere, resulting in radiation intensities additional to the already-present cosmic radiation. Access of these particles to the Earth’s vicinity during times of geomagnetic disturbance are not adequately described by using static geomagnetic field models. These solar fluxes are also often distributed non-uniformly in space, so fluxes measured by satellites at… CONTINUE READING
