Host: Ignacio Taboada

We'll look at two novel experiments that are looking for ultrahigh energy neutrinos in the Antarctic ice. ANITA is a balloon-borne experiment which has twice flown over Antarctica making observations of ultrahigh energy cosmic rays and neutrinos. ARA is a new englacial project, under construction at the South Pole with similar goals. Both utilize the Askaryan Effect, coherent radio Cherenkov emission from particle cascades in matter, for neutrino detection.
