Abstract

Forbush decrease was recorded for the first time with a global net of the neutron scintillation detectors (en-detectors) developed in INR RAS. The detectors are located at four geographic points: Baksan (43E, 43N), Gran Sasso, Italy (13E, 42N), Moscow (37E, 56N) and Obninsk (38E, 55N). This experimental fact by itself shows not only the possibility of using the detectors for cosmic ray variations study but also unbiasly supports the nuclear physics method developed by us as a novel instrument both for geophysical researches and for neutron environment monitoring.
