Abstract : Data obtained by means of two Geiger counters on Explorer VII were recorded at Kiruna Geophysical Observatory during some 80 transits of the satelite between February 6th and March 2nd, 1961. The radiation measurements have been investigated with respect to the geomagnetic activity and to the geographical position of the satellite. Curves of recorded apparent counting-rates are included.
