Abstract

Calculations of cut-off rigidities for cosmic ray particles in the earth's magnetic field have been carried out, using an approximation to the earth's field which includes all moments up to and including the octupole moments. The results show that deviations of the cosmic ray intensity from that calculated on the dipole approximation may be ascribed to the higher moments of the earth's field.
