- Conference date: 19-22 April 2004
- Location: Morelos (Mexico)
This paper is based on a talk presented April 21st at the International Conference on Nuclear Physics, Large and Small, Cocoyoc, Mexico. The conference, in honor of my colleague at Bartol, Stuart Pittel, celebrated his work in nuclear theory, which reflects a long tradition of nuclear physics at our institution. Here I briefly review some current aspects of another traditional field at Bartol, cosmic ray physics. I describe three examples in which the energy‐dependence of the relative abundances of different nuclei in the cosmic radiation is used to understand their origin. The emphasis is on the high‐energy end of the cosmic‐ray spectrum, which is accessible only to large, ground‐based air shower experiments.
