Dear Howard

EM-ENRGY includes only energy deposition by produced (in the FLUKA
simulation) electrons, positrons and photons. I think that you are
interested in the total energy deposition as scored with ENERGY, i.e.
deposited not not only via em particles explicitely created in the

See the manual, chapter

   * Final global statistics

for more details on energy balance in FLUKA.
