The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment has measured a nonzero value for the neutrino mixing angle θ(13) with a significance of 5.2 standard deviations. Antineutrinos from six 2.9 GWth reactors were detected in six antineutrino detectors deployed in two near (flux-weighted baseline 470 m and 576 m) and one far (1648 m) underground experimental halls.

Groundwater and seepage samples were collected from both the natural and building-modified slopes in the highly urbanized spaces of the Mid-Levels area, Hong Kong. Groundwater in the natural slopes, although retaining some signatures from rainwater, is enriched in major cations such as Na + , K + , Ca 2+ and Mg 2+ and some anions such as HCO 3-and SO 4 2-.… (More)
