Abstract

The India-based Neutrino Observatory Collaboration is planning to set up a magnetized 50 kt iron calorimeter (ICAL) with resistive plate chambers (RPC) as active detectors to study neutrino oscillations and precisely measure its parameters. A prototype detector stack is set up at TIFR (18°54'N, 72°48'E) to track cosmic ray muons. Using the muon data, angular distribution of cosmic ray muons at the sea level is studied here.
