  author={Marie Johanna Oehler and Roxanne Turcotte-Tardif},
At the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, a Surface Array Enhancement is planned, consisting of 32 hybrid stations, placed within the current IceTop footprint. This surface enhancement will considerably increase the detection sensitivity to cosmic rays in the 100 TeV to 1 EeV primary energy range, measure the effects of snow accumulation on the existing IceTop tanks and serve as R&D for the possible future large-scale surface array of IceCube-Gen2. Each station has one central hybrid DAQ, which… Expand

Surface detectors for IceCube-Gen2
The IceCube-Gen2 Neutrino Observatory will feature an in-ice optical array, a larger in-ice radio detector array, and a surface cosmic-ray air-shower array. The surface array will consist of stationsExpand
