Cosmic Ray and Astrophysical Neutrino Detection Cosmic Ray and Astrophysical Neutrino Detection

Description

The Telescope Array Project (TA) is the largest cosmic ray observatory in the northern hemisphere and has entered its eighth year of data collection exploring astrophysical phenomena at the highest ends of the cosmic ray energy spectrum. New additions to TA have expanded its reach down to lower parts of the energy spectrum thus allowing it to probe over an unprecedented 4.5 decades of energy via hybrid detection techniques. Recent results suggestive of anisotropy in the arrival direction of cosmic rays will be presented as well updated measurements of the spectrum, primary source composition, and a new measurement of the inelastic proton-air cross section.
