E. Conclusion

With our research we have discovered that our coding and the CORSIKA source code canĀ  help us develop plots and graphs that will distinguish between characteristics of both Hadronic and Electromagnetic air showers. Some characteristics we have discovered to be differential between different air shower events include: particle energy at ground level interactions, the energy at ground level in MeV of the interaction, distance form the center of ground level interaction, and secondary particle types produced during interaction. With the data collected from our analysis we have been able to identify the preceding criterion as possible means of particle identification.
