The effect of the heliospheric current sheet on cosmic-ray modulation
(North-West University (South Africa), Potchefstroom Campus, 2015)
The heliospheric current sheet is a dominant feature of the heliosphere. As solar activity increases, the tilt angle of the current sheet increases, and so does the region swept out by this structure, to cover most of ...
A comparative study of cosmic ray modulation models
(North-West University, 2015)
Until recently, numerical modulation models for the solar modulation of cosmic rays have been based primarily on finite difference approaches; however, models based on the solution of an appropriate set of stochastic ...
Modeling of galactic cosmic rays in the heliosphere
The modulation of galactic cosmic ray (GCR) Carbon in a north-south asymmetrical heliosphere is studied, using a two-dimensional numerical model that contains a solar wind termination shock (TS), a heliosheath, as well as ...
