Solar Protons in the Earth’s Magnetosphere According to Riometric and Satellite Data During the Magnetic Storms of October 2003
Fluxes and boundaries of penetration AQ1 of solar cosmic rays recorded by the CORONAS-F satellite during the super-storms of October 2003 are compared with the measurements of riometric absorption by the world-wide riometer network. Dynamics of the polar cap boundaries is studied at different phases of the magnetic storms. Behavior of the absorption value depending on time of the day and solar protons spectrum is calculated for different phases of the solar cosmic rays flare.
