Cosmic Rays vs. Solar Minimum

Recommended Posts

How many times have you heard or seen it repeated online that, "We are at an all-time high (at least since the space-age) for Cosmic Rays!"

Look at the evidence closely in the following video, and decide for yourself.

The Neutron Monitor used in the evaluation was the Oulu Cosmic Ray Station, which is probably the most cited in the scientific literature.

One can check Neutron Monitors all around the world via the Neutron Monitor Database.  Here is a map of the various stations. This link is where one can create their own plots, over various time periods.

The following plot is the complete CRaTER (a platform orbiting the moon) record starting in 2010.  The source of the plot was this article.  The bottom plot is ground-based data from the  Oulu Cosmic Ray Stationplotted over a similar timeframe.

A modulation in flux during 2017 is observed in both plots.
