Abstract

We present and discuss experimental results obtained from the measurements of cosmic ray fluxes and ion concentrations at different altitudes (from ground level up to 30-35 km) and latitudes (from equator to polar regions) in the Earth's atmosphere. We calculated ionproduction cross-sections and ion production rates from these data sets. The same characteristics are possible to be derived from the CLOUD experimental data using ion concentrations, particle beam intensities, etc. We discuss the methods of estimation of these characteristics in the CLOUD experiment.
