Abstract

Measurements of the forward and the transverse energy in 158 GeV per nucleon Pb208 + Pb collisions are presented. A total transverse energy of about 1 TeV is created in central collisions. An energy density of about 3 GeV/fm3 is estimated for near head-on collisions. Only statistical fluctuations are seen in the ratio of electromagnetic to hadronic transverse energy.
