Abstract. The characteristics of hadrons with Eh > 50 MeV in EAS have been obtained. The measurements were performed at the CARPET-2 extensive air shower array. For showers with E0 > 6 · 1013 eV the duration of hadronic cascade in NM has been estimated. The dependence of the mean neutron multiplicity in the neutron monitor on the total number of the change particles for EAS with Ne = 105–107 at a distance of 17–30 m from EAS axis has been measured.
