Abstract : The book contains the results of calculations of cosmic ray effective cut-off rigidities in real magnetic field. Use is made of the results of trajectory calculations of the penumbra function. The results of the effective cut-off calculations are presented for the whole network of cosmic ray stations in the USSR and abroad and for expedition studies. The tables are also presented which determine the dependence of effective cut-off rigidities on the type of detectors and their variations as expected for various cosmic ray variations.
