The cosmic ray (CR) intensity data recorded with Goose Bay Neutron Monitoring Station have been investigated on 60 quietest days (QD) in a year for studying the variation in tri diurnal anisotropy during solar cycle 21 and 22. It has been observed that in spite of abrupt change in the amplitude and phase of tri-diurnal anisotropy in CR intensity, the amplitude is quite significant throughout period of investigation with small amplitude during 1981 and 1990. Further, the phase shift to earlier hours during 1990-91 showing the dependence on the polarity of solar magnetic field, which is attributed to drift effect. Thus, the tri-diurnal anisotropy clearly shows 11 year type variation at mid-latitude neutron monitoring station.
