Due to its hybrid design, the Pierre Auger Observatory provides a variety of independent experimental observables that carry information on the characteristics of the longitudinal development of ultra-high energy air showers. These include the direct measurement of the profile of the energy deposit of showers in the atmosphere through the detection of fluorescence light but also observables derived from the shower signal measured with the surface detector array. In this contribution we present… CONTINUE READING
