This paper provides a technical description of the SuperNova Early Warning System (SNEWS), an international network of experiments with the goal of providing an early warning of a galactic supernova. 

The Supernova Early Warning System

A core collapse in the Milky Way will produce an enormous burst of neutrinos in detectors world-wide. Such a burst has the potential to provide an early warning of a supernova’s ap pearance. I will

SNEWS - The Supernova Early Warning System

The SuperNova Early Warning System is a cooperative project involving many experimenters coming from several, past and present, neutrino detectors. The primary goal of the collaboration is to provide

Neutrinos from supernovae as a trigger for gravitational wave search.

Exploiting an improved analysis of the nue signal from the explosion of a galactic core collapse supernova, we show that it is possible to identify within about 10 ms the time of the bounce, which is

The methodology of the search for a correlated signal from a supernova explosion using the data of gravitational wave detectors and neutrino observatories

The proposed methodology developed in cooperation of the LIGO, VIRGO, Borexino, LVD, and IceCube collaborations is based on a joint analysis of data from neutrino and gravitational wave detectors

Search for neutrinos from core-collapse supernova from the global network of detectors

The Supernova Early Warning System (SNEWS) is a cooperative effort between the world's neutrino detection experiments to spread the news that a star in our galaxy has just experienced a core-collapse



Observation of a neutrino burst in coincidence with supernova 1987A in the Large Magellanic Cloud.

A burst of eight neutrino events preceding the optical detection of the supernova in the Large Magellanic cloud has been observed in a large underground water Cherenkov detector. The events span an

Observation of a neutrino burst from the supernova SN1987A.

A neutrono burst was observed in the KAMIOKANDE-II detector on 23 February during a time interval of 13 seconds and consisted of 11 electron events of energy 7.5 to 36 MeV with angles 18°±18° and 15°±27°.

On the Event Observed in the Mont Blanc Underground Neutrino Observatory during the Occurrence of Supernova 1987a

We discuss here the characteristics of the event detected in the Mont Blanc Underground Neutrino Observatory on February 23, 1987, consisting of 5 interactions recorded during 7s. The measured

Angular distribution of events from SN1987A.

Improved measurements of the event energies and energy uncertainties, relative times, triggering efficiencies, and angles from the presumed source are presented.

Observation in the Kamiokande-II detector of the neutrino burst from supernova SN1987A.

The nature of the single, observed neutrino burst coincides remarkably well with the elements of the current model of type-II supernovae and neutron-star formation.

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory

A description is given of the proposed Sudbury Neutrino Observatory based on a 1000 tonne heavy water Cherenkov detector which is being designed. This detector would allow the measurement of
