[1] Self-consistent model of the solar wind interaction with three-component circumsolar interstellar cloud: Mutual influence of thermal plasma, galactic cosmic rays, and h atoms / A. V. Myasnikov, D. B. Alexashov, V. V. Izmodenov, S. V. Chalov // Journal of Geophysical Research. — 2000. — Vol. 105, no. A3. — P. 5167–5177. In this paper we continue our study of the galactic cosmic ray (GCR) influence on the structure of the heliospheric interface plasma flow [Myasnikov et al., this issue]. The model presented here is more realistic and takes the mutual influence of plasma, neutral, and cosmic ray components into account self-consistently. In the model, GCRs are described hydrodynamically under the assumption that their mass density is negligible; while neutrals are described kinetically. We explore the GCR influence on the heliospheric interface plasma structure by varying the diffusion coefficient, cosmic ray pressure, and adiabatic index. The problem is studied numerically, using the global iterations that couple the soft fitting technique for describing the plasma and GCR components and Monte Carlo simulations for H atoms. A strong GCR modulation is found in the heliospheric interface. At the same time, the GCR influence on the plasma flow is negligible as compared with the influence of H atoms. The exception is the bow shock, a structure which can be strongly modified by the cosmic rays. The Baranov-Malama model is therefore acceptable for interpretation of the physical processes in the heliosphere as long as the processes are not related to the bow shock structure. Although the simplest model of the cosmic ray transport is good enough to estimate GCR influence on the plasma and atom distributions in the heliospheric interface, more advanced models should be used to interpret the observed GCR spectra.
