Abstract : Since chromospheric flares occur rather frequently, the observed effect of increased intensity during the flares should distort the diurnal variation on individual days, while if solar cosmic rays reach the earth in a highly anisotropic flow, there should also be distortion of the mean diurnal variations, caused by the appearance of an addditional diurnal variation of solar particles. The purpose of the paper is to estimate the contribution of solar particles to both diurnal variations on individual days as well as mean variations.
