Abstract : The intensity and energy spectrum of primary cosmic ray protons having energies between 80 and 200 MeV have been studied in nuclear emulsions flown on 26 August 1960 over Fort Churchill. The upper limit to the intensity between 80 and 150 MeV of 53=6 protons/sq M.sec.ster obtained in this experiment is compared with with the value of 121=6 protons/sq M.sec.ster quoted by Vogt (Primary cosmic ray and solar protons, Phys. Rev., 125:366-377, 1962) from observations made just prior and just after this experiment. The reasons for this difference are discussed, and it is concluded that it is now unnecessary to make any assumptions for a relaxed modulation mechanism or for continuous solar emission of low energy protons.
