Cosmic Rays Flux Monitor
With a scintillation detector and a PMT we constantly monitor the cosmic rays flux (mainly muons). The detector has the following data :
Area Detector = 119 cm2
Normal Cosmic Ray Flux= 0,019 particles/s cm²
Expected Measured Flux : 119 cm2 x 0,019 particles/s cm2 = 2,261 particles/s = 136 cpm
The geographical position of the detector is the following :
Latitude = 46° 04′ 01” N
Longitude =11° 09′ 18” E
Elevation = 398 m Mean Sea Level
In the following chart we enlarge the scale in order to see more details.
This following other graph shows the trend of the cosmic ray flux over 7 days. In some time intervals, when the system did not acquire any data, the graph line is interpolated.
