With the aim to describe the longitudinal development of Cherenkov dominated showers we investigate the energy deposit and the number of charged particles in air showers induced by energetic cosmic rays. Based on the Monte Carlo simulations, discrepancies between different estimates of calorimetric energies are documented. We focus on the energy deposit profiles of air showers deducible from the fluorescence and Cherenkov light generated along CONEX and CORSIKA cascades.
