Description

The Pierre Auger Observatory, located in Argentina, has been detecting ultra-high energy cosmic rays for more than ten years. The combination of a large surface detector array and fluorescence telescopes provides a substantial improvement in energy calibration and extensive air shower measurements, resulting in data of unprecedented quality in the energy range from 0.1 EeV up to 100 EeV. A review of main results from the Pierre Auger Observatory is presented with a particular focus on the energy spectrum measurements , mass composition studies and the arrival directions analyses.
