A large multiplate cloud chamber with fast timing scintillators inside is being operated with the extensive air shower array at Ootacamund to further elucidate the time structure of high energy hardons in air showers. The major interest in the present investigation is to understand the nature of the large delay (>20 ns) high energy (>40 GeV) events that appeared as strong cndidates for heavy mass particles in an earlier experiment carried out with a total absorption spectrometer. Two events observed during one year’s operation of the experiment are discussed.

The neutrino events recorded in the Kolar Gold Field Nucleon Decay detector are analysed here. It is shown that there is good agreement between the observations and the estimates based on the intensities of atmospheric neutrinos and interaction cross-sections of neutrinos available from accelerator experiments. In the context of the search for proton decay, we show that the low energy (<2 GeV) neutrino events, which would provide the main background, are suppressed at the
