Observations are consistent with a significant fraction of heavy nuclei in the cosmic ray flux above a few times 10 eV. Such nuclei can be deflected considerably in the Galactic magnetic field, with important implications for the search of their sources. We perform detailed simulations of heavy nuclei propagation within recent Galactic magnetic field models. While such models are not yet sufficiently constrained to predict deflection maps in detail, we find general features of the distribution… CONTINUE READING
