In Chaps.  8 and  9 the development of cuts for the analysis of data from the stations ARA02 and ARA03 has been described. The cuts have been adjusted on a \(10\,\%\) subset of the data recorded in the year \(2013\). The current chapter describes the result after applying the developed analysis cuts on the full recorded data set. The events, surviving the \(QP\)-cut, the residual cut and all minor quality requirements are shown on sky maps in Figs. 10.1 and 10.2. The angular cuts are sketched as black boxes around the rejected area and as a line for the surface cut. One can see that no event passes the final angular selection. There are thus no neutrino candidates found in this data analysis.
