Abstract : A model of the Interplanetary Heavy Ion Environment which included both galactic cosmic rays (GCR) and solar energetic particles (SEP), was developed for the CRRES mission. The model is based on data from the ONR-6O4 experiment which flew on CRIES. A description of the datasets, analysis software, and cosmic ray model is given, as well as a description of the validation of the model.
