Summary
Abstract: During the 1996-97 austral summer, a period of solar minimum, we operated a
neutron monitor on board the ship Italica of the Italian Antarctic Programme to
record cosmic ray neutron intensities in seas from Italy to Antarctica and
back. This survey provided a full coverage of cut-off rigidities and the
possibility of repeating the measurements at least twice at the same cut-offs.

Quality The high-energy cosmic ray (CR) nucleonic component intensity was measured with
a standard neutron detector (of NM-64 type, extensively used all over the world
in several CR stations) made by three large BF3 proportional counters placed,
each of them, inside a lead structure, surrounded by a proper layer of
polyethylene (N1,N2,N3).

Lead works as a neutron ... View entire text
