Simulation of the Cosmic Ray Moon Shadow in the Geomagnetic field

Abstract

An accurate MonteCarlo simulation of the deficit of primary cosmic rays in the direction of the Moon has been developed to interpret the observations reported in the TeV energy region until now. Primary particles are propagated trough the geomagnetic field in the Earth-Moon system. The algorithm is described and the contributions of the detector resolution and of the geomagnetic field are disentangled.Comment: 4 pages, 5 figures, Contribution to the 31st ICRC, Lodz, Poland, July 200
