The simultaneous observation of the electromagnetic and TeV muon components of extensive air showers by the EAS-TOP and MACRO detectors, respectively, is described for a period of 100 days in 1990. The two detectors and their combined resolutions are briefly reviewed and muon multiplicity distributions for various detector configurations are presented.

Abstract

The simultaneous observation of the electromagnetic and TeV muon components of extensive air showers by the EAS-TOP and MACRO detectors, respectively, is described for a period of 100 days in 1990. The two detectors and their combined resolutions are briefly reviewed and muon multiplicity distributions for various detector configurations are presented. A first analysis of the physical parameters N(mu) and N(e) related to the study of the primary composition at E0 = 10(14) - 10(16) eV is also presented.
