Resumen:
Muons, accompanied by secondary electrons, dominate the characteristics of inclined air showers above 60◦ . The characteristics of the signal induced by the electromagnetic component in thewater-Cherenkov detectors of the Pierre Auger Observatory are studied using Monte Carlo simulations. The relative contributions of the electromagnetic component to the total signal in a detector arecharacterised as a function of the primary energy, for different assumptions about mass composition of the primary cosmic rays and for different hadronic models.
