Flavor Composition of Atmospheric Neutrinos in Underground Detectors

Conference paper


During the last few years a significant number of neutrino interactions has been recorded in large underground detectors, mainly nucleon decay detectors. A good understanding of these neutrino events is a requisite in nucleon decay analyses, where they are the most important background, giving 3 x 10-31 interactions per nucleon per year. A decisive contribution to the measurements of neutrinos and antineutrinos from cosmic ray interactions in the atmosphere comes from these underground experiments, which made analyses with emphasis on the GeV energy range.
