Measurement of Cosmic Radiation with Emphasis on Neutrons at high Geomagnetic Latitudes

Air crew members and airline passengers are continuously exposed to cosmic radiation during their flights. Particles ejected by the sun (Solar Particle Events SPEs) during periods of high solar activity contribute to this exposure. In rare cases the dose from a single SPE might even exceed the annual dose limit of 1 mSv above which dose monitoring

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

Air crew members and airline passengers are continuously exposed to cosmic radiation during their flights. Particles ejected by the sun (Solar Particle Events SPEs) during periods of high solar activity contribute to this exposure. In rare cases the dose from a single SPE might even exceed the annual dose limit of 1 mSv above which dose monitoring of air crews is legally required. It is proposed here to investigate SPEs at the Koldewey station by means of a Bonner sphere spectrometer, because their intensity is largest close to the geomagnetic poles. The project will provide first experimental data on the time-dependent energy spectrum of neutrons produced in the atmosphere after an SPE.
