Abstract:

Information was revealed by satellite measure ments about the conditions existing in inter planetary space. However, these measurements were restricted to isolated regions and have not succeeded in providing a broad overall picture of the electromagnetic environment. For this reason, cosmic rays which sample the inter planetary state over large regions, provide us in their time variations with a valuable clue as to the way in which the sun influences the inter planetary weather. It is of great interest to establish by what mechanisms the sun controls the intensity of cosmic radiation sampled at the earth. Many modulation mechanisms were forth coming as a result of the evergrowing interest and development in plasma physics. It is the testing of these models against observation that will provide us with a detailed description of the far reaching effects of solar activity. Author
