      The geomagnetic cut-off rigidities for cosmic ray particles arriving at the top of the atmosphere over Hyderabad, India (geographic latitude 17.6°N. and longitude 78.5° E.), as a function of zenith and azimuthal angles and the vertical cut-off rigidities for a few neighbouring locations, have been made using the sixth degree simulation of the geomagnetic field by the C.D.C. 3600 Computer.
