Description

Large aperture detector systems to measure high energy cosmic rays, also offer unique opportunities in other areas of science. Disciplines include geophysics such as seismic and volcanic activity, and atmospheric science ranging from clouds to lightening to aerosols to optical transients. This talk will discuss potential opportunities based on the ongoing experience of the Pierre Auger Observatory.
