Abstract

The current status of mass (M) and charge (Z) measurements are reviewed for cosmic ray nuclides, and an estimation is made of their possible status by 1980. The determination of M using dE/dx-E and C.E techniques is discussed, and typical instrument characteristics are described. The determination of Z is discussed for ultraheavy cosmic rays using the dE/dx-C technique.
