Production of isotopes by cosmic rays in the Earth’s atmosphere plays a key role in many studies in solar physics, geophysics, archeology and other fields. For those purposes, precise quantitative modeling of their production is crucial, and high-resolution altitudinal profiles of production rates are in high demand. Here we present detailed and consistent yield functions of isotopes Be-7, Be-10, C-14, Na-22 and Cl-36 produced by energetic particles in the atmosphere. Comparison
of reconstructions of the Be-10 deposition flux in 1951-2013 and around 775 AD with ice core measurements is shown for illustration of application of our yield functions.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
