Number of events above a given energy (efficiency cuts not considered) for different geometrical exposures. The red dotted and the green dashed lines appreoximately represent the geometrical acceptance of the AMS02 and the FERMI experiment, respectively.
More than 100 years after their discoveries, cosmic rays have been extensively studied, both with balloon experiments and with ground observatories. More recently, the possibility of mounting detectors on satellites or on the International Space Station has allowed for a long duration (several years) continuous observation of primary cosmic rays, i...

Atmospheric properties have a significant influence on electromagnetic (EM) waves, including the propagation of EM signals used for remote sensing. For this reason, changes in the received amplitudes and phases of these signals can be used for the detection of the atmospheric disturbances and, consequently, for their investigation. Some of the most...
