Measuring ionizing radiation in the atmosphere with a new balloon-borne detector
Space Weather: The international journal of research and applications
Increasing interest in energetic particle effects on weather and climate has motivated development of a miniature scintillator-based detector intended for deployment on meteorological radiosondes or unmanned airborne vehicles. The detector was calibrated with laboratory gamma sources up to 1.3 MeV, and known gamma peaks from natural radioactivity of up to 2.6 MeV. The specifications of our device in combination with the performance of similar devices suggest that it will respond to up to 17 MeVdoi:10.1002/2017sw001610 fatcat:bgpbw6nhvbdjxlkcbo5c4p6wha
