Neutron monitors (NMs) (Rolf Buetikofer)

1.) Invention/development of the NM
2.) NM design: counter tubes, producer, moderator, reflector
3.) Electronic circuits / data-taking systems
4.) Physics of NM
5.) Contribution of different components to total counting rate; multiplicities
6.) Response of NM (yield, response and coupling functions)
7.) Variation of the NM count rate with latitude and altitude
8.) Meteorological and environmental effects (snow, wind, barometric pressure)
9.) Longterm stability of NMs and reliability of data
