Abstract:

Measurements on the size-spectrum of extensive air showers were made over a period of about one year to include approximately 100,000 events. It is found that errors of about 5 in determining the number of particles traversing the scintillator make it impossible to observe time variations of less than 8. Briefly, the method employed consists in finding the integral spectrum of the pulse-size distribution occurring in a large liquid scintillator.
