MONITORING MUONS ON THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH

DATA (GRAPHS)

(Click on graph to load large image.)

NOTES

a) All graphs are calibrated in elapsed hour periods (unless indicated as 2 hour periods) and in counts per time unit.

b) All hour graphs start with Start Time + 1 Hour.

c) All 2 hour graphs start with Start Time + 2 Hours.

d) Average Counts (Av.) are averages per minute and should be multiplied by 60 for one hour and 120 for the 2 hour graphs.

e) The counts are close to micro-roentgens/hour for RM-60 Geiger Counter - the 105 conversion factor in the aw-graph program is set at 100 which nullifies any conversion.

f) EDT is GMT - 4 Hours.

g) All the data was collected between 7/2/01 and 7/19/01 in PA in the area of 40 deg.lat. and -75 deg.long.

h) Degrees (deg.) indicate the direction of the 2 Geiger Counters, 90 deg. is straight up, 0 deg, is sideways in the indicated 2 directions, other deg. values indicate the angle above the horizon in the indicated direction.

i) The menu items on the large images are not clickable.
