The construction and operation of the HiRes observatory, as well as the calibration procedures are also explained. Detailed simulations of extended air showers in the atmosphere, as well as modeling of the detector's response under varying operating conditions are described. The method of processing raw cosmic ray data to the final analysis stage is also reported.3.17 The Rev4 preamplifier circuit diagram 73 3.18 The quantum efficiency of HiRes PMTs as measured for different wavelengths 74 ... 98 3.27 The maximum run time and actual stereo collection time for all runs from 1 December, 1999 to 11 November, 2005 (runs #1 ... iVmax of the proton and iron showers contained in the CORSIKA shower library used by the Monte Carlo 129 4.8 The measured xmaxanbsp;...
