Abstract: We present numerical simulations modeling the transport of galactic cosmic rays in the heliosphere including the termination shock (TS) and the heliosheath beyond the TS. The present work is a first stage aiming toward a 3-dimensional treatment. It is our purpose to develop a simple fast stochastic integration method that can handle discontinuities like the TS. Here, we consider a simple spherical model including diffusion, convection, adiabatic cooling and shock accleration at the TS. An incompressible heliosheath is assumed beyond the TS. We briefly address the underlying physics, present illustrative simulation results, and discuss their implications.
