The main scientific goal of the ICANOE detector(1) is the one of elucidating in a comprehensive way the pattern of neutrino masses and mixings, following the SuperKamiokande results and the observed solar neutrinos deficit. To achieve these goals, the experimental method is based upon the complementary and simultaneous detection of CERN beam (CNGS) and cosmic ray (CR) events. For the currently allowed values of the SuperKamiokande results, both CNGS and cosmic ray data will give independent measurements and provide a precise determination of the oscillation parameters. Since one will observe and unambiguously identify v[sub e], v[sub μ] and v[sub τ] components, the full (3 × 3) mixing matrix will be explored.
