In this study, cosmic ray (CR) data and radiosonde measurements from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (Rc= 14.4 GV) for the period of one year, were used to study the effect of ground temperature, level of muon production, and temperature at that level, on CR muons observed by newly installed multi wire (MW) detector. The regression analyses between the recorded CR muons and these variables were carried out and the required coefficients were determined. It has been found that the level of muon production and ground temperature are inversely correlated with the CR muons. On the other hand, the temperature at the pion production level is positively correlated with CR muons.

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.
