Abstract

Investigation of the CR variations of meteorological origin helps, in its turn, in the study of the temperature fluctuations in the Earth’s atmosphere on pressure levels smaller than 100-200 mb. From this point of view measurements made underground are of particular interest because, as was found in the previous Chapters 5 and 9, the large value of the temperature coefficient W T (h) at small h and the very small value of W T (h) at large h imply that the intensity of muons underground is very sensitive to variations of the temperature in the upper layers of the atmosphere and practically insensitive to temperature changes in the lower layers. A favorable circumstance is that the variations in the extra-atmospheric origin of the muon intensity underground are considerably smaller than at the surface.
