Interpretation of Cosmic Ray Composition: the Pathlength Distribution

  • R. J. Protheroe (a1) (a2) and J. F. Ormes (a1) (a2)

Extract

The chemical composition of cosmic ray nuclei with 3≤Z≤28 between ~100 MeV/nuc and a few hundred GeV/nuc are compared with a consistent set of propagation calculations. These include the effects of spallation (energy-dependent cross sections are used), escape and ionization loss in the interstellar medium and deceleration in the solar cavity. This has enabled a consistent study of the cosmic ray pathlength distribution to be made over this entire energy range. Details of the propagation calculation are left to a forthcoming paper.
