Galactic cosmic rays: spectrum/ composition / anisotropy
- Teresa Montaruli ()
Dr. Paolo Desiati (WIPAC - University of Wisconsin, Madison)
This is a review of the observations of cosmic ray anisotropy in a wide energy range, spanning from sub-TeV to EeV energy range. The observations will be described, addressing the different experimental techniques used at the various energy ranges, and stressing the potential physical mechanism they are able to probe. Proposed scenarios that address the origin of the cosmic ray anisotropy will...

The High-Altitude Water Cherenkov Observatory, or HAWC, is an air shower array in central Mexico designed to observe cosmic rays and gamma rays between 100 GeV and 100 TeV. HAWC will be completed in early 2015, but has been collecting data in a partial configuration since mid-2013. With only part of the final array in data acquisition, HAWC has already accumulated a data set of nearly 100...
