This review covers the sessions SH 3.1–3.5: “Galactic cosmic rays in the heliosphere” of the 26th International Cosmic Ray Conference held in Salt Lake City, Utah, in August 1999. The subtopics are modulation models, long-term variations, gradients, anisotropies, and spectra, composition & charge state. Noteworthy contributions include a number of new models, numerical simulations of transport coefficients—including the first of the drift coefficient—that highlight the continuing problems with perpendicular transport, various other attempts to pin down the spatial and rigidity dependence of the diffusion tensor, charge-dependent modulation and especially the role of the wavy current sheet, and the Gnevyshev gap during solar maximum conditions. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We present a new axisymmetric model of the heliosphere that includes the three principal particle species (plasma with magnetic field, interstellar neutral atoms and galactic cosmic rays). An important improvement over the previous models is the kinetic description for the cosmic rays instead of...

    Galactic cosmic rays are entering the heliosphere from the interstellar medium, while anomalous cosmic rays are believed to be pickup ions accelerated at the heliospheric termination shock. Both particle species are modulated by the solar wind and the heliospheric magnetic field. Since 1997...

    We consider a stationary model of the propagation of galactic cosmic rays (GCR) in the heliosphere and adjacent interstellar space. The heliosphere is assumed to be a two-layer medium consisting of two adjacent regions that are spherically symmetric relative to the sun. The solar wind velocity...

    The different models of the infinitely thin global heliospheric current sheet with small (<5) number of parameters are considered. It is shown that the form of the current sheets calculated using the Wilcox Solar Observatory (WSO) model, the main source of our knowledge of this form, is rather...

    Our studies of the neutron and muon components data from many observatories with different cut-off rigidities during solar cycles 19–22 have made it possible to investigate the hysteresis character of the relationships between the variations in solar activity and in galactic cosmic ray...

    The intensity of Galactic cosmic rays in the heliosphere is modulated by solar activities. The outer boundary where the solar modulation begins has always been a subject matter of debate in the cosmic-ray and heliophysics community.

    Many new results on galactic cosmic ray composition and spectra were presented at the 26th ICRC. The sessions covered in this paper (OG 1.1, OG 4.1, and OG 4.2) include direct measurements of cosmic rays, related work on modeling and interpretation, and plans for future experiments in this area....

    Galactic cosmic rays are believed to be generated by diffusive shock acceleration processes in Supernova Remnants, and the arrival direction is likely determined by the distribution of their sources throughout the Galaxy, in particular by the nearest and youngest ones. Transport to Earth through...
