Measurements and results

Results from with two different types of instruments are reported. Both are based on tissue equivalent proportional counters. In one counter is evaluated according to the variance method, in which electric current measurements and determination of its variance are the essential quantities. In the second one the detector consists of many small proportional counters, which are evaluated traditionally.

The variance method gives less detailed information than the other one based on traditional pulse height analysis and the response characteristics of the former instrument is therefore important to review. Such results are discussed in the report as well as in the reports to come.

The results from both detectors agree with each other as well as with those reported by others within the accepted uncertainty during the whole time period. Results from measurements during Forbush events have been reported. Of particular interest are the results from measurements with several groups onboard the same flight, as systematic uncertainties then become visible. Such results are important for the conclusions concerning the radiation dose received onboard aircraft.
