This review describes telescopes designed to study neutrinos from astrophysical sources. These sources include the sun and supernovae emitting neutrino energies up to tens of MeV, atmospheric neutrino sources caused by cosmic ray interactions, and other sources generating neutrino energies ranging up to 1×1020 eV. Measurements with these telescopes also provide information on neutrino properties, including clear evidence for neutrino flavor change. Telescopes in operation in the past and… Expand
ATMOSPHERIC AND GALACTIC TAU NEUTRINOS
Neutrinos with energy greater than GeV are copiously produced in the p(A,p) interactions occurring in the earth atmosphere and in our galactic plane. A comparison of the tau and mu neutrino flux inExpand
GeV to TeV astrophysical tau neutrinos
Abstract Neutrinos with energy greater than GeV are copiously produced in the p ( A , p ) interactions occurring in several astrophysical sites such as (i) the Earth atmosphere, (ii) our galacticExpand
High-Energy Neutrino Astrophysics: Status and Perspectives
