Abstract

We present well-observed interplanetary disturbances in the near Earth environment and discuss their behavior. From these observations a hypothetical two source origin of Solar Cosmic Rays is discussed. The hypothesis proposes that high-energy particles are generated by flare process and that low energy particles are generated at the interplanetary disturbance shock. An estimate of the distance for shock activation is presented.
