Calculations of cosmic‐ray propagation through the heliosphere, in the terrestrial atmosphere using a combination of a modified version of the adjoint Monte Carlo code, ATROPOS, and a suitably modified version of the deterministic transport code, PLOTINUS. ATROPOS solves the Parker heliospheric transport code in one and two dimensions in a 3‐dimensional heliosphere and provides cosmic‐ray spectra to be used by PLOTINUS to determine the radiation effects of interest. Other cosmic‐ray properties, such as the deceleration time (related to the so‐called deceleration potential) and the angular distribution of cosmic rays at earth orbit will also be described.
