Particle Shielding

Aside from the TRANS module that allows you to calculate particle energies and fluxes after passing through aluminum, what other shielding effects are considered in the CREME96 code? From information available on the website, it appears the GTRN evaluates, at the specific orbit parameters, the geomagnetic shielding effects. Are there any other shielding effects considered e.g. Earth's atmosphere?

There is only geomagnetic and material shielding (GTRN and TRANS) in CREME96. Atmospheric effects would occur at altitudes much lower than CREME is used.
