Summary: Problems and Prospects
As one can see from above consideration, the studies of terrestrial radiation environment is important from many reasons. In particular, the fluxes of solar energetic particles (SEPs) are needed for many space studies, such as study of the Sun itself, interplanetary medium and radiation exposure of lunar samples, and applications, such as radiation damage for to humans and experiments in space. Also, radiation protection problems for the space station and approaches to their mitigation are of great practical significance (e.g., Simonsen et al., 1991, Parnell et al., 1998).
