ANITA-2 Data Analysis

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


During its flight ANITA-2 recorded \({\sim }21.4\) million RF triggered events. Simulations of ANITA-2 inform us that the experiment was likely to see very few neutrino-induced signals, with typical estimates in the range \(O\)(0.01–1) events, depending on the neutrino flux model used. Meanwhile, the number of cosmic-rays that triggered ANITA-2 is expected to be lower than the 16 observed by ANITA-1 due to modifications in the trigger scheme used.
