Measurements of the Composition of Galactic Cosmic Rays on SAMPEX


The Mass Spectrometer Telescope (MAST) on board the Solar, Anomalous, and Magnetospheric Particle Explorer (SAMPEX) satellite is designed to make high resolution measurements of the elemental and isotopic composition of cosmic rays from ~C to Ni over the energy interval of ~15 to 300 MeV per nucleon. At this conference, we will present a preliminary look at the composition of galactic cosmic rays as measured with this instrument, based on approximately the first 6 months of data.
