Abstract

This thesis presents the results of some investigations into
problems associated with the determination of the relationship
between the sea level directional muon flux, as observed by muon
detectors, and the primary cosmic ray flux.
Previous estimates of muon coupling coefficients (which
express the primary-secondary intensity relationship) have been
in poor agreement, and insufficient to define the zenith angle
dependence of the coefficients. A new determination was therefore
undertaken.
