    An early motivation for studying high-energy cosmic rays was the expectation that anisotropies in the arrival directions would be found. However, as more and more information became available about galactic magnetic field strengths, it was realised that protons with energies at least as great as 30 EeV must be studied to pick out point : Lu Lu, Alan Watson.

components of solar modulation and produce streaming (anisotropies) of particles in the heliosphere. The anisotropies can be investigated at Earth by examining the count rates of cosmic ray detectors.

The anisotropic streams appear as diurnal and semi-diurnal variations in the count rates of cosmic ray recorders in solar and sidereal time. diffusion, convection and adiabatic energy loss. Our analysis indicates that adiabatic energy may play an impor-tant role in the radial distribution of galactic cosmic rays in the inner heliosphere.

In the outer region diffusion and convection are the dominant processes. Key words: Cosmic ray modulation, transport equation, gradients. Introduction.

In this paper we consider electrons unresolved as to charge sign, that is we use the term electrons to include both negatrons and positrons.

Four-dimensional Transport of Galactic Cosmic Rays in the Outer Heliosphere and Heliosheath. This analysis also leads to an interstellar galactic cosmic ray energy density of ≡ eV cm The distribution of galactic cosmic ray particles in the heliosphere is influenced (modulated) by the Sun's interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) and the solar wind.

The strong shocks, bounding the supernova remnants, are the sites of high-energy particle acceleration (cosmic rays), which fill, and diffuse through, the whole galactic disk, eventually entering.

An inter-comparison of the first two harmonics has been made so as to understand the basic reason for the occurrence of cosmic ray anisotropies during the period and – using the Neutron monitor data from and Haleakala Neutron Monitoring Stations.

The annual average values of the first two (daily) harmonic amplitudes and phases for neutron monitor data due to the change in. different energies of cosmic rays [Alanko et al., ]. [3] For many purposes it is important to know the differential energy spectrum of cosmic rays and its temporal variations.

For example, the direct use of a linear relation between the energy-integrated cosmic ray flux and solar activity may lead to large uncertainties in long-term studies. The propagation of high-energy cosmic rays (CRs) through giant molecular clouds constitutes a fundamental process in astronomy and astrophysics.

The diffusion of CRs through these magnetically turbulent environments is often studied through the use of energy-dependent diffusion coefficients, although these are not always well.

thick. One can figure out the diffusion coefficient of cosmic rays in the Galactic magnetic field is very large, in the order of j ism ¼ cm2s 1 for cosmic rays of 1GeV (see, e.g., Ginzburg and Syrovatsky,2 Strong and Moskalenko,3 Ptuskin,4 Busching and Potgieter5).
