This is a significant task that comprises such ISM components as the molecular H 2 , atomic H i , and ionized H ii gas, interstellar radiation field, and regular and random components of the magnetic field. GALPROP calculates the three components of the diffuse emission, neutral pion decay, bremsstrahlung, and inverse Compton, for a user-defined CR source distribution and injection spectra. The inverse Compton component was found to be dominant and enhanced in that region. In the synchrotron polarization maps, we found that the spectral index of Loop I is harder than the local spectrum and the spectrum of a control loop. First, many model-dependent structures e. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided.

HelMod is a 2D Monte Carlo model to simulate the solar modulation of galactic cosmic rays.

Introduced the possibility of evaluate solar modulation of ions. The inclusion of the Local Bubble and variations of the interstellar gas distribution does not cure the problem. Measurements of the other species demonstrate a good agreement with model predictions. Understanding the propagation of CRs in the interstellar medium and in the heliosphere is equally important.

Recently the latest AMS all-electron data were used to improve the model predictions for the synchrotron emission Orlando Visitors Statistics from Sept 1, Today This may be an indication that the local interarm low-energy CR density is lower than the CR density in the Galactic arms where most of the neutral gas and CR sources are located.

Since the launch of the Fermi observatory, it is officially used by the Fermi-LAT collaboration for interpreting the diffuse emission data diffuse ; diffuse2.


This is likely due to fact that some models parameters are degenerate. Statistical analyses have been carried out before using semi-analytical models, but the evaluation of the results obtained from such models is difficult, as they necessarily suffer from many simplifying assumptions.


Following the evolution of the solar activity in time, we are able to modulate the local interstellar spectra LIS of cosmic ray species, assuming their isotropy beyond the termination shock, down to the Earth’s location inside the heliosphere.

In the present website version, a solar modulation calculator is available for Cosmic Rays experiments carried out during solar Cycle 23 and The figure is taken from galgas.

We have also investigated the effects of spatial models, which have never been tested against gamma-ray data so far. We are recently teamed with a group of experts developing the HelMod 2 2 2 http: Relevant result pictures from HelMod publications can be found in Results page.

One single point in the Galaxy where we can reconcile the direct and indirect measurements of CRs is located deep inside of the heliosphere. Alternatively, it could suggest that the structure observed in the polarization map may be connected with the Fermi Bubble. However, no significant variations of the spectrum across the bubbles were found in the analysis made in bubbles.

HelMod: the Modulation Model through the Heliosphere

The energy density of CRs in the interstellar medium is about 0. In the synchrotron polarization maps, gwlprop found that the spectral index of Loop I is harder than the local spectrum and the spectrum of a control loop.


Secondary production in collisions of CR particles with interstellar gas and the following decay of radiative isotopes are included.

Accounting for heliospheric propagation is absolutely essential for proper treatment of CR propagation in the Galaxy, but was a considerable challenge until recently.


In these pages you can find information about the Solar Modulation Model for the propagation of Galactic Cosmic Rays through the Heliosphere from the Termination shock down to Earth.

Model predictions were compared with radio surveys from 22 MHz to 2.

A detailed study of the CR-induced diffuse emission from the whole Galaxy was performed on a grid of propagation models diffuse2 using the Fermi-LAT data. What is the reason of such a good agreement with data? This allows the existing bottle neck to widen significantly with the hope that it will drop completely very soon.

In fact the most precise isotopic measurements are made at low energies and the information gained from them is extended to all energies up to the knee and to the whole Galaxy.

Since the end of August ofit galporp finally leaving the heliosphere.

In the absence of such a CR source, the shape of the spectra of CR species at low energies is driven by the energy losses, mostly due to the ionization, which are properly accounted for by the GALPROP code.

The results discussed in this paper show that we are at the beginning of a new very exiting era in astrophysics. The measurements made by the spacecraft since then put an anchor on the models of heliospheric propagation now on.
