Abstract

We present the first results of the combined measurements of the EAS-TOP (at the surface) and LVD (deep underground) detectors operating as a combined telescope in the study of UHE cosmic rays and their interactions. Examples of different classes of events and their significance in different high-energy and astrophysical studies are discussed.
