Anomalous Cosmic Rays: A Sample of Interstellar Matter


Anomalous cosmic rays are a sample of the neutral interstellar medium that has been accelerated to energies of ~1 to 50 MeV/nuc. A comparison of ^(22)Ne/^(20)Ne measurements from various sources implies that galactic cosmic rays with energies > 100 MeV/nuc are not simply an accelerated sample of the local interstellar medium.
