Description

The current status of the GAMMA experiment on Mt. Aragats in Armenia is presented. A modernization of the GAMMA muon underground detector array was recently completed between October 2011 and February 2012. Sixty additional muon scintillation detectors were constructed and are now taking data. This will improve the selection of muon-poor showers, and the primary energy estimation and also provide improved information on the primary cosmic-ray mass composition.
