Base data set for cosmic dose rate calculation

Collection of data from various sources needed for cosmic dose rate calculation

Format

values.cosmic.Softcomp:

data frame containing cosmic dose rates for shallow depths (< 167 g cm^-2) obtained using the "AGE" program by Rainer Gruen (cf. Gruen 2009). These data essentially reproduce the graph shown in Fig. 1 of Prescott & Hutton (1988).

values.factor.Altitude:

data frame containing altitude factors for adjusting geomagnetic field-change factors. Values were read from Fig. 1 in Prescott & Hutton (1994).

values.par.FJH:

data frame containing values for parameters F, J and H (read from Fig. 2 in Prescott & Hutton 1994) used in the expression

$$Dc = D0*(F+J*exp((altitude/1000)/H))$$
