[SH059] Observations with the Mini Neutron Monitor at Sierra Negra, Mexico

Primary authors



In this study we analyze the observations with the Mini Neutron Monitor (miniNM) located at Sierra Negra, Mexico. This relatively new cosmic-ray detector is the mobile versión of the standard NM64. There are about seven of these instruments around the world. The miniNM at Sierra Negra is the highest loctated miniNM (4100 m a.s.l.), and with the cutoff rigidity of approximately 8.5 GV. It is in the same place as the HAWC observatory, and has been in operation since September 2014. In this work we applied recently analysis of the yield function and barometric coefficient for the minNM (Caballero-Lopez, 2016; Lara et al., 2016), to model the high altitude cosmic-ray observations at Sierra Negra.
