Abstract

In the investigation of cosmic rays at balloon altitudes, it is important to recognize the various factors that affect the total intensity at any point in the atmosphere. The three main factors are: (1) Atmospheric influence: variation of intensity with atmospheric depth, (2) Geomagnetic influences: variations of intensity with the geomagnetic latitude, and (3) Extraterrestrial influences: periodic and non periodic variations of intensity.
