Tracking what is "normal" on cosmic radiation in the atmosphere

I have tried several times to find good data on what is normal in cosmic radation at altitudes (Airplane Flights).    And there is basically zero data out there.   Now I found this by following a user link at ENENEWS

 I will  buy the app, and try it on a flight out of Hawaii.     
I will also put my geiger on a long duration count and then see how results compare.
The TrackYourDose app was developed by Germany-based esooka.
It uses a mathematical model developed by scientists and meteorologists from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Germany and the University Oulu, Finland.
Since 1997, PTB has studied the cosmic radiation at typical flight altitudes and used this to calculate radiation levels.
To to do this, PTB's scientists developed a carry-on 'flight case'.
Using the case, PTB's scientists measured more than 2,500 points at flight altitudes between 5 miles (8km) and 7.5 miles (12km) worldwide between 1997 and 2006.
This covered geographical location, the flight altitude and solar activity.

  1. Know idea if this helps, but WTH is broccoli anyway?

    Neutron Monitor Database:
    NMDB Documentation:

    MVB may have more familiarity with that site to reduce slope of learning curve (hopefully).
