Abstract.

In this paper we present the results of a search for nuclearites in the penetrating cosmic radiation using the scintillator and track-etch subdetectors of the MACRO apparatus. The analyses cover the \(\beta =v/c\) range at the detector depth (3700 {\rm hg/cm^2}) \(10^{-5} < \beta < 1\); for \(\beta = 2 \times 10^{-3}\) the flux limit is \(2.7\times 10^{-16}{\rm cm^{-2}s^{-1}sr^{-1}}\) for an isotropic flux of nuclearites, and twice this value for a flux of downgoing nuclearites.
