Efficiency Correction factor

Because of the changes of hardware/software during the station operation period, the efficiency of cosmic ray registration might have been slightly changing. This is carefully taken into account, and the efficiency correction factor is used to provide a homogenous long-term data series.

The NM count rate in the database is normalized to the count rate before 1985 so that
I normalised  =  I measured  * FC

where FC is the efficiency correction factor (see below).
