PLANETOCOSMICS Geant4 ApplicationTitle

Category: APPLICATIONS > PHYSICS / GEO

Description

The PLANETOCOSMICS Geant4 application allows to compute the hadronic and electromagnetic interactions of cosmic rays with the Earth, Mars and Mercury environment. For each planet it is possible to take into account the presence of the planetary magnetic field, atmosphere and soil. Following the planet that is considered different magnetic field models and atmospheric models are available. The code has been developed such that the addition of new models should be rather simple. The main applications of the code are : • The computation of flux of particles resulting from the interaction of cosmic rays with a planet environment at user defined altitudes, and/or atmospheric depths. • The computation of the propagation of charged particles in the planet magnetosphere. • The computation of cutoff rigidity (mainly for the Earth) at given position on a planet and for different direction of incidence. • The visualisation of magnetic field lines, and the trajectories of primary and secondary particles in the planet environment.
