Abstract

The radial variation of the ∼0.5-2 MeV proton background is estimated at 20-80 AU during low solar activity periods using Voyager 1 LECP data. The estimation of proton radial gradient suggest an intensity drop between about 30 and 60 AU and a change of the gradient sign from negative to positive beyond about of 70 AU.
