Conference paper


Transverse-energy distributions have been measured in the pseudo-rapidity region −0.1 >ηlab < 2.9 for oxygen-nucleus collisions of incident energies of 60 and 200 GeV per nucleon for Al, Ag, and W target nuclei. We present a summary of the results and a comparison to theoretical model descriptions.
