The measurement of large scale anisotropies in cosmic ray arrival directions is generally performed through harmonic analyses of the right ascension distribution as a function of energy. These measurements are challenging due to the small expected anisotropies and meanwhile the relatively large modulations of observed counting rates due to experimental effects.

Abstract

The measurement of large scale anisotropies in cosmic ray arrival directions is generally performed through harmonic analyses of the right ascension distribution as a function of energy. These measurements are challenging due to the small expected anisotropies and meanwhile the relatively large modulations of observed counting rates due to experimental effects. In this paper, we present a procedure based on the shuffling technique to carry out these measurements, applicable to any cosmic ray detector without any additional corrections for the observed counting rates. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
