Abstract

A Cherenkov water detector with volume 9× 9 × 26 cubic meters is described.The spatial lattice of the detector is formed by quasispherical measuring modules which allow to detect Cherenkov light from any direction with practically equal efficiency. Each of the modules consists of six PMTs directed along rectangular coordinate axes. The possibility of neutrino-induced muon detection under conditions of high background on the Earth's surface is discussed. Experimental data obtained during Spring 1996 are analysed.
