Abstract: For the first time the Pierre Auger Collaboration presents〈Xmax〉and σ(Xmax) measurements covering nearly three decades of energy. In this analysis we include new Xmax data obtained with the High Elevation Auger Telescopes (HEAT) enhancement. The HEAT telescopes cover a field of view ranging from 30◦ to 60◦ of elevation and are located next to one of the standard fluorescence detector sites (Coihueco). The combination of the HEAT and Coihueco telescopes covers a field of view from ∼2◦ up to ∼60◦ of elevation. Thus, the combination can sample the longitudinal profile of nearby lower energy showers, allowing us to extend the energy range down to 10[sup]17 eV.
