Cosmic Ray Composition around the Knee from Eas Electromagnetic and Muon Data

  • Published 2001


The EAS-TOP and MACRO Collaboration * We report the analysis of the N e-N µ coincident events collected by the MACRO/EAS-TOP collaboration at the Gran Sasso Laboratories. The result points to a primary composition becoming heavier around the knee of the primary spectrum (in the energy region 10 15 − 10 16 eV). The result is in very good agreement with the… (More)
