Richard, your graph is interesting. Likely the GM did not respond to the
neutron radiation and also under-responded to the high energy protons, so
the stated exposure rate may be low. Do you know if your flight occurred
during what is called a GLE. ( "Ground Level Enhancements" or burst of
particles from the sun that reach earth)
