Description

We summarize the results of analysis of cosmic ray (CR) measurements in the Earth’s atmosphere at several latitudes on October 20 and 24, 2014. The cosmic ray fluxes in the atmosphere were recorded during balloon flight in Zaragoza (Spain; 41°39′N, 0°54′W) by two detectors constructed at the Reading University, UK and at the Lebedev Physical Institute, Russia. We compare these data with simultaneous cosmic ray measurements by standard radiosondes in northern Murmansk region, Apatity (Russia; 67°33′N, 33°24′E), in Antarctica (observatory Mirny; 66°33′S, 93°00′E) and in Moscow (Russia; 55°45′N, 37°37′E). The measurements in Reading (UK; 51° 27′N, 0° 58′ W) and in Mitzpe-Ramon (Israel; 30°36′N, 34°48′E) are also used in the analysis. We focus on the estimation of the cosmic ray latitudinal effect in the atmosphere. The new results will be discussed and compared with the previous results obtained.
