The electric field of the beam of rarified ionised gas ejected from the sun has been invoked by Alfvén in connection with geomagnetic storms and aurorae. An attempt is made to study the effects of this electric field on cosmic rays. From a study of the ionization chamber records published by Carnegie Institution for the years 1945 and 1946, it appears that the deceleration in the electric field seems to be the most important among the types of effects expected in cosmic rays.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1957.tb01875.x
