Abstract

The region of the "knee" of the cosmic ray primary spectrum (1015 < E0 < 1016 eV) is studied in the electromagnetic and muon components of Extensive Air Showers by means of the EAS-TOP array. Independent and correlated analysis of the two measurements are presented as a function of zenith angle (i.e. atmospheric depth).
