The results of all solar neutrino experiments carried out so far are shown in Tab l (the gallium experiments Gallex and Sage are taken together). For comparison the range of predictions of several Standard Solar Models (SSM) [1] [2] [3] is listed for each type of experiment together with the calculated contributions of the strongest solar neutrino branches. A basic analysis shows that the result of Kamiokande [4], which is only sensitive to the high energetic and less accurately predicted 8B-neutrinos, is in the range of predicted values. That means, depending on the underlying SSM, there is a deficit of neutrinos or not. Combining the Kamiokande result with the data of the radiochemical Homestake-experiment [5] the derived flux for the 7Be-neutrinos seems to be strongly suppressed for all SSM’s.
