Abstract

The amplitude and phase of the cosmic ray anisotropy are well established experimentally between 1011 eV and 1014 eV. The study of the evolution of the anisotropy over primary energy in the range 1014 - 1015 eV can provide a significant tool for the understanding of the knee in the primary spectrum. In this paper we extend the EAS-TOP result, obtained at E0 ≈ 1014 eV, to higher energies by using the full data set (8 years of data taking), and exploiting an analysis method, the "East-West" one, which is independent from detector and atmosphere effects. Results derived at 4 1014 eV from the harmonic analysis of the data in solar, sidereal and anti-sidereal time are presented and discussed.
