The atmospheric effect correction of the muon flux measured by ground level telescopes is of special importance for further study of cosmic ray variations. The Duperier method is used to correct atmospheric effects on the muon intensity observed by the MuSTAnG telescope. Linear multiple correlation and regression analysis are applied to the data registered during the year 2009. The aerological data are obtained from daily radiosonde balloon flights of Deutscher Wetterdienst. The regression coefficients and total correlation coefficients are calculated for all directional channels. The seasonal variations are eliminated from the MuSTAnG telescope data. The results are compared with theoretical elimination of temperature variations.
Key words: Space weather / muon telescope / atmospheric effect
