- An approximate polarization correction for ionization loss suggested by Sternheimer has been implemented in the galactic cosmic ray transport code (HZETRN) developed at the Langley Research Center. Sample calculations made for the aluminum shield and liquid hydrogen shield show no more than a plus or minus 2 percent change in the linear energy transfer (LET) distribution for flux compared with those without polarization correction. This very small change is expected because the effect of polarization correction on the reduction in stopping power of ions with energies above 2 GeV/amu is suppressed by the decrease in galactic cosmic ray ion flux at such high energies.
