Description

One-year exposition data on absorption of high-energy cosmic ray hadrons with energies of tens of TeV in two-tier X-ray emulsion chamber (XREC) with large air gap ($\sim$ 2.2 m) are presented. The experiment was carried out at the Tien Shan High Mountain Research Station located at the altitude of 3340 m a.s.l. It is shown that the abnormal behavior of the hadron absorption curve, which was formerly observed in some cosmic ray experiments with deep lead calorimeters, can be accounted for by assuming a rapid growth of charmed particle production efficiency in the forward cone with increasing energy. The experimental results of both the two-storey XREC exposition and earlier expositions of homogeneous lead calorimeters are compared with simulation data calculated on the basis of a phenomenological hadronic interaction model (code FANSY 1.0) implementing quark-gluon string theoretical approaches and assuming various charm production cross section parameters. A preliminary result of charm production cross section in the forward cone at energy $E_{lab} \sim 75$ TeV is discussed. Particularly, the result is compared with those of collider experiments (RHIC and LHC) obtained for kinematic central region characterizing by relatively low pseudorapidities.
