# Very energetic events (>100 TeV)

Study very large and energetic events. 

- saturation effects
- reconstruction and quality cuts (are good events discarded and why?)
- sensitive area of low vs high zenith angle observations

## Find events

Not all sim_telarray files contain >100 TeV events. Use evndisp DL1 files to find events and convert only those sim_telarray files with large events to dst:

```
./make_dst_maxEnergy.sh
```

Several hard wired options in the script:
- minimum energy (e.g., 100 TeV)
- azimuth angle
- production and particle type
- search list

This script uses the ROOT macro [find_event_energy.C](find_event_energy.C) to check if a run contains events above the given minimum energy.
