Abstract:2516 quality extensive air showers (EAS) were observed in coincidence using the HIRES nitrogen fluorescence detector and the CASA-MIA ground array within the energy range 10(16.7)-10(17.9) eV. Arrival direction, energy, location of muon content, and Xmax were determined for each event. A predominantly heavy composition was found over the entire energy range. The muon multiplicity and lateral distribution function (LDF) out to 1200 meters were determined and found to be in good agreement with results from AKENO. The measured energy dependence of the LDF is modest.
