Comparison of simulated longitudinal profiles of hadronic air showers with MASS2 balloon data
J. Guy1, P. Vincent1, J. P. Tavernet1, M. Rivoal1

The KASKADE and CORSIKA air shower generators are compared to the data collected by MASS2 balloon experiment in 1991. The test of longitudinal profile for proton, helium and muon flux production provide good constraints on these air shower generators. KASKADE and CORSIKA especially with the new simulator UrQMD for low energies are found to fit these data well. This study is limited to a comparison of longitudinal profiles and therefore does not provide constraints on the overall shower development.
