Abstract content

Experimental complex NEVOD for investigations of cosmic rays in the energy interval (10^15-10^19 eV) is described. The composition of primary cosmic rays in the high energy region becomes heavier and interactions of these cosmic rays are nucleus-nucleus. The complex consists of Cherenkov water detector with 2000 m^3 volume, coordinate-tracking detector DECOR with 70 m^2 area, array of scintillator detectors forming calibration telescopes system (CTS) and array of thermal neutron detectors PRISMA. Nowadays, NEVOD is being expanded with three new setups: NEVOD-EAS of 10^5 m^2 for determination of air shower axis, URAN for registration of neutrons in EAS, and coordinate-tracking detector TREK on drift chambers of 250 m^2 effective area. The first part of new detectors in now under operation. Examples of detection of the first events by means of the combined array are discussed.
