Neutrino telescopes are opening new opportunities in observational high energy astrophysics. In these detectors, atmospheric muons from primary cosmic ray interactions in the atmosphere play an important role. They provide the most abundant source of events for calibration and for testing the reconstruction algorithms. On the other hand, they represent the(More)
The ANTARES detector was operated in a configuration with 5 lines for a period of 10 months from February until November 2007. The duty cycle was better than 80% during this period and almost 2 · 10 7 atmospheric muon triggers were collected. This large sample was used to test Monte Carlo simulation programs and to evaluate possible systematic effects due(More)
The deep ocean is the largest and least known ecosystem on Earth. It hosts numerous pelagic organisms, most of which are able to emit light. Here we present a unique data set consisting of a 2.5-year long record of light emission by deep-sea pelagic organisms, measured from December 2007 to June 2010 at the ANTARES underwater neutrino telescope in the deep(More)
