Description

The Telescope Array (TA) is the largest ultrahigh energy (UHE) cosmic ray observatory in the northern hemisphere. TA is a hybrid experiment with a unique combination of fluorescence detectors and a stand-alone surface array of scintillation counters. We will present the spectrum measured by the surface array alone, along with those measured by the fluorescence detectors in monocular, hybrid, and in stereo mode. The composition results from stereo TA data will be discussed. Our report will also include results from the search for correlations between the pointing directions of cosmic rays, seen by the TA surface array, with AGN's.
