Simulation of horizontal extensive air shower

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Earth-skimming neutrino experiment such as NuTel or CRTNT detects air shower, which is produced by decay of tau lepton, from near horizontal direction. Traditional shower simulations have difficulty in simulating shower at zenith angle near 90 degree, where some variables diverge to infinity. Recent CORSIKA simulation code had updates on simulation of horizontal air shower. We also developed a method to simulate horizontal air shower. This talk will compare results from both methods.
