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.
