ATLAS and ultra high energy cosmic ray physics

James Pinfold, B. Pattison
2017 EPJ Web of Conferences  
After a brief introduction to extended air shower cosmic ray physics the current and future deployment of forward detectors at ATLAS is discussed along with the various aspects of the current and future ATLAS programs to explore hadronic physics. The emphasis is placed on those results and future plans that have particular relevance for high-energy, and ultra high-energy, cosmic ray physics. The possible use of ATLAS as an "underground" cosmic muon observatory is briefly considered.
