[SIT06-06] Towards "Neutrino Geoscience" with Geo-neutrino Measurement
Keywords:geo-neutrino, Earth's radiogenic heat
KamLAND, Kamioka Liquid-scintillator Anti-neutrino Detector, utilizes 1 kton liquid scintillator and reported the first experimental study of geo-neutrino in 2005. Later the geo-neutrino signals were used to estimate the Earth’s radiogenic heat production and constrain the composition models of the bulk silicate Earth. We have begun to use neutrinos as “probe” to observe the Earth’s interior.
In this talk, we will present status and future prospects of geo-neutrino measurement and possible application to geoecience.
