  • Larmor Radius

This page enables users to calculate the Larmor radius for any particle and for any position.The larmor radius is calculated in the shifted dipole approximation, with the simple formula you can find here

To perfomr the Larmor Radius calculation please follow this link:

Input Parameters

Input values are

  • geographical latitude (from 88 to -88 deg.)
  • geographic longitude (from 0 to 360 deg.)
  • altitude from the Earth's surface (in km)
  • Particle rigidity (in GV)

 

Output Parameters

 

Ouputs are:

  • value of the geomagnetic field (in Gauss)
  • larmor radius (in km)
