The relevant parameters for the site choice of an underwater neutrino’s telescope are discussed. The in situ measurement of the scattering distribution of the Cherenkov light requires a suitable experimental setup. Its main features are described here. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The Radio Ice Cherenkov Experiment is an ultra-high energy neutrino detector at the South Pole. In this contribution we motivate the search for ultra-high energy neutrinos by considering the astrophysical objects which are expected to emit neutrinos. We describe the philosophy behind using radio...
