Geo-neutrinos and Earth's interior
by

Publisher: arXiv.org
Number of pages: 56

Description:
Geo-neutrinos, the antineutrinos from the progenies of U, Th and K40 decays in the Earth, bring to the surface information from the whole planet, concerning its content of natural radioactive elements. Their detection can shed light on the sources of the terrestrial heat flow, on the present composition, and on the origins of the Earth.
