Cosmic Shower Parametrization and CME Hazard Prognosis
John Mailolo - Kamehameha Schools Kapalama
Cosmic showers are a natural event caused by radiation, which may produce negative and mutagenic
effects within human populations. This study defines the parameterization to measure and detect
increased levels of cosmic radiation, utilizing solar flare data first, then flux levels.
In addition to parametrization, this methodology predicts a correlation with cosmic radiation on Earth,
within one to three days. This parameterization also highlights the potential boundaries at which solar
flares may pose a potential hazard, surpassing the Forbush effect, at solar flare magnitudes of M7 and higher.
