Abstract

A corrected energy dependence of the depth of the maximum in the wide range of energies 1015 to 1018 eV is obtained using data collected at the Tunka-133 facility over 7 years of operation (2009–2017) and the TAIGA-HiSCORE facility in the 2019–2020 season. At the highest energies, our results match those of the Pierre Auger observatory. The results are converted to parameter ❬ln A❭, which characterizes the mean EAS composition.
