The report presents results of investigation of characteristics of Forbush decreases that occurred in 2016 and were detected by muon hodoscope ScMH. For this, barometric coefficients and differential temperature coefficients (DTC) were calculated, allowing to make corrections in the counting rate with considering of the temperature changes at all altitudes of the atmosphere. Obtained characteristics were compared with results of registration of the same events with the help of the URAGAN muon hodoscope. Comparison of results obtained with both detectors demonstrated a good agreement.
