Abstract:The atmospheric depth, Xmax, at which the particle number of an air shower reaches its maximum is a good indicator for the mass of the primary particle. We present a comparison of the energy evolution of the mean of Xmax as measured by the Telescope Array and c Collaborations. After accounting for the different resolutions, acceptances and analysis strategies of the two experiments, the two results are found to be in good agreement within systematic uncertainties.
Keywords:Pierre Auger Observatory, Telescope Array, Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays, elemental composition, extensive air showers, the atmospheric depth of the air shower maximum
