A Coordinate Detector for Studying Horizontal Fluxes of Cosmic Rays


A DECOR coordinate detector is a multilayer system of plastic streamer tube chambers located around a NEVOD Cerenkov water calorimeter. The basic characteristics of the detector are as follows: the area is ∼100 m2, the angular resolution is ∼1°, and the space resolution is ∼1 cm. The structure of the detector, data acquisition and trigger systems, and results obtained during the operation of a pilot assembly (8 chamber layers and a working area of 8.4 m2) are given.
