NEMO: NEutrino Mediterranean Observatory
The NEMO (NEutrino Mediterranean Observatory) Collaboration aims at R&D for the construction of an underwater Cerenkov neutrino detector. Great attention is dedicated to projects for the apparatus electronics and mechanical structures. At this stage the main effort of the collaboration is devoted to the selection and characterization of a marine site suitable for the detector deployment. Several sites near the Italian coast have been investigated. In addition, during year 2001, the collaboration will install a test site at 2000 m depth near the Sicilian coast. The facility will be fundamental to study the deep sea environment and to test the reliability of submersed structures.
