Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


First results on the lateral and temporal structures of EAS obtained from the EAS-TOP array are presented. A correlation between the slope of the lateral distribution function and the time delay of EAS particles with respect to the shower front at fixed core distance is found and discussed.
