Abstract
Non-recurrent short-term variations of the galactic cosmic-ray (GCR) flux above 70 MeV n-1 were observed between 2016 February 18 and 2017 July 3 on board the European Space Agency LISA Pathfinder (LPF) mission orbiting around the Lagrange point L1 at 1.5 × 106 km from Earth. The energy dependence of three Forbush decreases is studied and reported here. A comparison of these observations with others carried out in space down to the energy of a few tens of MeV n-1 shows that the same GCR flux pa...
