Abstract

We report here in brief some results of observation and analysis of atmospheric thermal neutron flux sporadic variations during cosmic ray Forbush-decreases and thunderstorms. The results obtained with unshielded scintillation neutron detectors show in both cases prominent flux decreasing correlated with geomagnetic cutoff or with meteorological precipitations after a long dry period. Also, dependence of registered Forbush-decrease on an absorber thickness above the detector is presented. No evidences for the “thunderstorm neutrons” effect were observed during two summer time periods of data recording.
