Direct measurements of cosmic rays (neutron) flux at several sites in Antarctica
Entry ID: K112_1997_2000_NZ_2

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Cosmic rays (neutron) flux was directly measured with a portable detector in conjunction with a study examining the production of cosmic ray produced nuclides in rocks. The semi portable detector recorded neutron counts, temperature, pressure and time, integrated over a set time interval. A few small measurements were made at Scott Base, Hooper Shoulder on Mt Erebus and during the flights to and ... View entire text
