Calibration of the operative cosmic ray detector at Marambio Base in the Antarctic Peninsula
During 2019 an Antarctic Space Weather Laboratory was deployed at Marambio base in the Antarctic Peninsula. The main instrument installed was a cosmic ray detector based on water Cherenkov radiation (WCD). This detector is the first permanent Antarctic node of the LAGO (Latin American Giant Observatory) Collaboration. Long-term calibrated observations of the WCD will be presented here. Finally, the global galactic cosmic rays variability observed with the WCD will be compared with observations of a neutron monitor with similar rigidity cut off than the Marambio site.
