This article summarizes selected case studies in applying muon tomography to mineral exploration, which is called muon geotomography, and describes the techniques used to reconstruct a three-dimensional density model of the subsurface.
A Simple Parameterization of the Cosmic-Ray Muon Momentum Spectra at the Surface as a Function of Zenith Angle
The designs of many neutrino experiments rely on calculations of the background rates arising from cosmic-ray muons at shallow depths. Understanding the angular dependence of low momentum cosmic-ray
Muon Tomography Applied to a Dense Uranium Deposit at the McArthur River Mine
This article reports on the first application of muon tomography (a novel method for imaging density contrasts underground using cosmic rays) for imaging dense uranium deposits within the Athabasca
Three‐dimensional computational axial tomography scan of a volcano with cosmic ray muon radiography
[1] Cosmic ray muon radiography can measure the density distribution within a volcano. Unidirectional radiography shows a precise cross-sectional view of a conduit and a magma body through a volcano

Liquid scintillators for large area tracking system
We report on studies of non-toxic scintillating liquid useful for large surface detectors. Arrays of liquid scintillators offer a rather simple tool for detecting charged particles traversing a
MATHUSLA: A Detector Proposal to Explore the Lifetime Frontier at the HL-LHC
The observation of long-lived particles at the LHC would reveal physics beyond the Standard Model, could account for the many open issues in our understanding of our universe, and conceivably point
Muon radiography applied to volcanoes imaging: the MURAVES experiment at Mt. Vesuvius
Muon radiography is a technique based on the measurement of absorption profiles of muons as they pass through matter. This measurement allows to obtain an image of the inner structure of large volume
Recent Progress and Next Steps for the MATHUSLA LLP Detector
We report on recent progress and next steps in the design of the proposed MATHUSLA Long Lived Particle (LLP) detector for the HL-LHC as part of the Snowmass 2021 process. Our understanding of
