Description

The search for anisotropies in cosmic ray arrival directions with space experiments like the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) on the International Space Station is subject to a number of time- and energy dependent effects. Many of these systematics originate from the detector, the orbit and space weather: Selection efficiencies may vary as a function of detector position in the Earth's magnetic field and time variations on short time scales in the Sun's magnetic field may imprint a signal in cosmic ray arrival directions. This presentation discusses the systematic studies performed for anisotropy searches with AMS-02.
