Mean distribution as a function of energy [16]. The dots are experimental results. The lines are simulation results for proton and iron predicted by Corsika [17] with the hadronic interaction model QGSJET 01 (solid line), QGSJET II-03 (dashed line), SIBYLL (dot line), and EPOS 1.6 (dot-dashed line) [18, 19].
