dc.description.abstract The arrival-time distribution of shower particles far from the core has been measured as a function of shower axis distance at the Akeno Observatory by a cluster of 64 scintillators (total area 16 m2) located near the centre of the 1 km2 array. More than 3500 1 km2 array events and about 300 20 km2 array events have been analysed. The authors compare parameters tau (exponential fit to arrival times), sigma (conventional dispersion) and tr (rise time) for the specification of the spread in arrival times. From a measurement of time spread, the shower axis distance can be determined with an uncertainty of 25 to 30% with this detector system. The resulting uncertainty in shower size, including a 60% uncertainty in particle density measurement, is 120 to 140%. The resultant smearing of changes in slope of the frequency spectrum of incident showers is calculated. The smearing masks all but the gross changes in slope. The method may be useful for anisotropy studies, when a system for finding direction is included. en_US
